Here I am, 24 hours before the 35th William Inge Theatre Festival, and my allergies kick in.
Claritin, do your thing.
This is as good a time as any to tell you that from now through Sunday I’ll be in Inge mode: blogging about theatre and related fun but on a really limited basis because I just checked the schedule and I will be really busy. There’s a New Play Lab where thirty-five short plays will be read and discussed, and I have one being done. I’m also presenting a paper at the scholars conference, plus serving on a couple of panels. Joining me for his third trip to Inge is The Old Professor who also is having one of his plays done in the Lab.
There will be the usual tributes and gala dinners and plays, including a production of the rarely-seen Inge play, “Where’s Daddy?” starring Barbara Dana.
According to my count, this is my 25th Inge Festival. I think I’m getting the hang of it.
