Like the rest of the world, I have been following the news of the pandemic with an eye towards understanding responsible courses of action. It is now clear that it would not be safe to resume face-to-face classes any time soon. Please stay tuned for the all-clear signal to re-join me in the Lab!

In the meantime, I have been inspired and moved by the many performing artists who are finding ways to stay connected and creative online. So, I plan to roll out some free online activities that people can try with me while we wait out this period of separation. To begin, I am borrowing an idea from the Dramatists Guild:

Call for Submissions to the LEMON LIVE MICRO-PLAY FESTIVAL!

To connect, to share, to vent, to mourn, to laugh, please write a 2-character play of no more than 150 words. The theme should be anything related to this coronavirus moment. In keeping with the Dramatists’ Guild guidelines, please write lines that could be read by people of any age, gender, background or circumstance, without rehearsal.

The deadline is Friday, March 27 at 5 pm!
One play per writer, please.

The LEMON LIVE MICRO-PLAY FESTIVAL will be held on Tuesday, March 31st at 7 pm, online platform TBA. ***In-studio, truly LIVE performance to be scheduled as soon as safely possible!

Send your submissions in .doc or .pdf format to Leslie, with the subject heading “LEMON LIVE” followed by your last name.

Please include your full name and preferred contact information in the body of your message.

I look forward to writing and reading with you!
Be well and stay tuned for more virtual theatre from LPTL!
