Psychopathia Sexualis is a comedy about a man with a secret regarding socks. (As Reed would say, this play is not about sex, it's about socks.) This man has been trying to get help from a psychiatrist, but things get complicated, and he enlists three more; his best friend, his best friend's wife, and his fiance. Cue intellectual power struggle. Psychopathia Sexualis will be the second John Patrick Shanley production that I have appeared in (following Doubt from early this season, also at Interplayers), so that's a bonus. Although this script seems to have come from a different author entirely than the one who penned Doubt...should be some interesting discussions regarding that.
BUT first thing's first...I'm in final rehearsals for Steel Magnolias at the Spokane Civic Theatre! (Interesting sidenote, my current co-stage manager for Steel Magnolias, Nancy Gasper, will be playing Artie in Eleemosynary...and we also worked together along with George Green in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest! I love the crossover in our theatres right now!) Anyway, Steel Magnolias technically opens February 26 and runs until March 21. Personally, I'm just finishing my final text work and just beginning to link everything together as a whole. I got a really good note last night from our director (George Green) regarding my vocal energy. I'm really excited to try it out in tonight's rehearsal. Steel Magnolias gets a reputation as a chick script (understandably) but I think the overall message can be placed in the universal category. Why don't you see it and let me know ;)
