My TED "Talk"

It's the morning of November 3rd.  Today will be a first -- the first ever TED talk comprised entirely as a play.  This has been an interesting (meaning difficult) script -- honoring the the typical TED audience with complex issues and technology in the play.  But the purpose of theater is to inspire and entertain, and I hope we have accomplished that as well.

The "we" in the previous sentence is not just the humble version of "I" -- this was a true work of collaboration.  The actors worked with me on dialogue, even using improv for some conversations that shifted the text.  Craig also made dialogue suggestions, and the actors and I provided some thoughts on staging.  And of course, Craig and the actors brought forth wonderful interpretations of the text during rehearsal that filled a black and white script with a kaleidoscope of colors.  Besides word processing, the greatest gift a playwright can receive is a talented director and cast.  The holiday season came early this year.

Now it's on with the show.
