Congratulations, Bog Face!

Tonight Blade and I went to ReBar for UKELOOZA 5, a fundraiser for Rain City Projects. It was fun in the way that things that you have no idea what to expect but turn out to be great are fun. Bret Fetzer was a lively auctioneer and it was exciting. Blade bid $74 for a $75 gift certificate to some restaurant called The Stumbling Goat (keep meaning to go to that Jamaican place on 2nd where they serve goat...) and she won, so that was funny. The Vis a Vis Society were pretty great. Perhaps most exciting, however, was the announcement that Rain City Projects, a great organization that publishes plays by Northwest Poets, are starting this thing called the Manifesto Series in which they have a nationally recognized playwright write an essay, a "manifesto", about which direction they thing theater should be taking. Then they choose six plays by Northwest writers that they think illustrate the points of the manifesto. Anyway, for the first one Eric Ehn (one of the few contemporary playwrights I've heard of) selected Bog Face's play "Stray"...one of only six out of the one hundred and ninety nine Rain City has published so far. How awesome is that?

Hey thank you everybody! I heard rumors of this a while back, but didn't know all the details. Now I really want to read the Manifesto to know what sort of theater I might have been perpetuating. And thanks to all of you who were in the play or made it happen somehow - such a large number of are just right over there in the right-hand column...
