#2 - An Excerpt from At the Barre (Act Two)

Welcome back to month #2 of 12 for 12 at 12 (12 plays for 12 months with one excerpt released at 12pm on the first of every month). 

In an exciting update, I will have my first residency starting on February 4th! I will have an Independent Writing Residency at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center for the next two weeks. I will be focusing on developing scenes between the two main characters of At the Barre. For this month's entry, the first 11 pages of Act Two of At the Barre!

About At the Barre: Catherine, a talented principal dancer at ABT with the weight of the world on her shoulders, and Shawn, a non-binary, overweight mime with gender identity and self-esteem concerns, as well as their Inner Selves, are thrust into each other’s lives after an insane audition. Navigating the format of a Golden Age love story injected with mime, ballet, combat, and slapstick, At the Barre focuses on how one finds their beauty and finds a genuine connection in a cluttered and overly talkative world.
