I just got back from the first and only rehearsals with my fellow actors for the staged reading of my new play “The Last Bastion.” We did an initial reading and then somewhat mapped out our blocking on stage and did a staged rehearsal.
Tomorrow, we have a dress rehearsal in the afternoon and then the big show at 8pm @penangpac followed by a short Q & A to get some feedback for the piece.
I’m on stage for one of the few times in my life, but I had a lot of fun with the role, playing boisterous George Parsons, the conservative Christian talk show host who will do anything to protect the last bastion of conservatism. Christopher Preslar is playing George’s son Seth, who is bringing home his atheistic Chinese girlfriend (Vinna Law) to meet his parents. Ai Ching Ung is reading the role of Hannah, George’s faithful wife, who keeps some secrets of her own.
So if you are in town, please come on out and enjoy “The Last Bastion.”
