I'm in a group of actors that includes Rae Norton West (whom I've just loved in Kenley Smith's "12 Stations of the Cross" as well as a production at Roanoke Children's Theatre, among other things) and Mary Jean Levin, who's been a solid Roanoke actress for years. We're being directed by Art Borreca, who is an artist in residence at Hollins these days, and the playwright is New York school teacher and theater veteran John Galvez, who stood in front of us for about 15 minutes, asking questions and writing about half a script. My guess is he'll be through by about 9 o'clock tonight.
