We had only three rehearsals, a quick tech, and one performance, but this staged reading of Paul Elliot's new work "TBD" marked my first directing work since "Abandonment" for Red Twist back in 2006. The script had its ups and downs, and my directing barely got the performers onto their feet. But this remarkable cast threw themselves into their work with absolutely passion and commitment and I was very proud of them.
