Last month, one of my most-produced ten-minute plays, "Lend Me a Mentor," was produced at the Open Eye Theater up in the Catskills as part of their "Summer Shortcuts" program. The play is about a young writer who stalks her favorite curmudgeonly old novelist at a book signing, and tries to talk him into being her mentor. It's been done in Los Angeles, featuring the delightful duo of America Young and Tom Boyle, directed by Julie Briggs. It's been done in San Diego, and in China, and in a handful of other places. Glad to add upstate New York to the list!
"Lend Me a Mentor" by EM Lewis at the Open Eye Theater. Directed by Melissa Day. Featuring Barbara Morrow and Mark Gunst. Performances were August 9-19 at the Open Eye Theater, 960 Main Street, Margaretville, NY.
