I have about two weeks before Dear Creature's official release on October 11. Very soon, my book will be out in the world, finding its place. It's an exciting, anxious time. As Sarah and I rearranged some stuff in our house to make way for baby (the latest work, coming in January), I found some old photos from my play, Sea Freak. This is where the concept for my sea monster love story began.
Ah, zee memories... I remember staying up all night before performance day finishing the ocean-proof monster suit. I had to wear it while making it so all the latex scales would conform to my body shape. The best part was my friend and director, Alex Kamer, having the decency to sew the last few scales onto my butt at 6 in the morning. Poor man.
