Lumottu (Enchanted)

Tonight my play LUMOTTU will get a reading at the Arts Society of Kingston's Playwrights' Lab New Play Readings at 6:30 PM


97 Broadway
Kingston NY 12401

Arja lives with one foot in this world and the other in the mythic world of ancient Finland. Her family has moved to the new world, but the old world’s magic clings to their lives — and deaths.

Yes, it is utter madness to schedule it now; it was originally scheduled for the end of May when I decided I was much too busy with teaching and getting ready to go to England to do a reading as well (as I have to be director/producer).


Well, you know; if my life weren't utter madness, how would I know it was my life? With luck I've got Kipper sorted, the flood waters have receded enough for me to get to the storage facility (yes, really) and I can enjoy the performance for what it is (a chance to hear what the play sounds like outside my head) without being consumed by anxiety and madness.

With further luck, news on an ebook version of Unikirja soon, too!

Come to Kingston, mon, if you can and if not, wish me luck or more boxes or a safe passage. Or just buy one of my books (and while you're at it, leave me a review! That's even more essential whether it's Amazon, B&N, Goodreads or Library Thing).

Wow. You are a busy woman! Good luck and congrats.

And I'm glad that Kipper has a berth, and things are shaking down...

Patti, what I am is a madwoman >_<

Todd, it's a real relief and my friend Barn who'll be caring for him is the best friend any pet can have. Things are, well, going to finish up somehow tomorrow, at least as far as this location goes...

I hope to hear how the performance went!

It went well despite some last minute cast substitutions and a speedy introduction to pronouncing Finnish names. Comments were helpful for the most part; there were a few people who found the subject matter completely unappealing (i.e. the fantastical elements) and good suggestions about parts that were too brief or two long. I even sold a copy of Unikirja, so hurrah.
