For Book-It’s production of What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver, I sat in on almost every rehearsal. Director Jane Jones and I focused on finding the connections between Raymond Carver’s tumultuous life and the characters he created. I wrote a detailed blog post about the process for Book-It’s website here.
Local author Jim Lynch commented, “Awesome dramaturgy on the Carver play! I loved your lobby presentation on the man, his past, his inspirations, the people he inspired and so on. Even his quotes you picked out were perfect.”
