Chameleon in Aspic . . .
I had a wonderful time this week working on the very first draft and public reading of Eric Rudnick's new play, "Chameleon in Aspic." We reading the play for The Playwright's Union on June 2nd, 2018. Eric's work is innovative and exciting, and this play is particularly juicy. I am honored to get to read it at the very beginning of its journey. I am over the moon to got to read the play with some fantastic actors, including Anne Gee Byrd!! I have known Anne for a handful of years, but I have never been lucky enough to work with her. AGB has over 150 credits on IMDB and I have had the honor to see her play some great roles on stage, from the title role in GB Shaw's "Mrs. Warren's Profession" to Nell in Becket's "Endgame." She is a force with which to be reckoned.
In "Chameleon in Aspic" we are playing opposite each other. I am playing Samantha, a chef who wants to open a restaurant, but doesn't have the gumption to do so until she meets Grace at the funeral of a famous and extremely skilled French chef. Grace becomes Samantha's consultant and mentor. The play is full of twists and turns, as well as a surprise ending . . . the night was great fun!!!
