Summary3.20.04. Well, well -- you can see that I have to work on two scripts for 2004-2005 season ("The Shrew" and "Anti-Oedipus"). Yes, I went for the classics and my favorites on the short list, but since both texts are in public domain, I can re-write. What? Another adaptations?
Worse. I am thinking about "Pygmalion" (copyright free) and "Four Books" (I have my problems with "The Passions of the Christ"). 2005-2006. "The Jesus and Christ" is on my list for many years...
2004 & After
Yes, I do not work on "The Possessed" (which I want to rename -- "The Terror" or "Prince" -- Stavrogin). When I can get to it? Summer 2004?
QuestionsThe Possessed 2003: contact Arye in Israel?
The Possessed 2003
FINITA (Four Farce & One Funeral)
The Second Chekhov, invisible, only the dying Anton sees him, hears and talks with that Chekhov, who will live after his death in 1904. Who lives now... Even in Fairbanks, Alaska.
( Letters edited by Lillian Hellman, as if she wanted to write about him... )
I thought that all I have to do is to write a good play... The Internet was my last hope; I put the script on the web -- bingo! "They will find it"...

... what is the difference between write.vtheatre.net and plays.vtheatre.net?
First -- my mother's death in 1994. Second -- my father's stay in US in 1998, last -- my father's wake, in Moscow again, 2004.
Look at the dates -- it's almost twoo years since I began this project.
New: по-русски -- Речной Вокзал (in Russian and in progress) and Playwright page in WRITE directory. There are related pages in SCRIPT directory too.* GODOT.06: Doing Beckett => main stage Theatre UAF Spring 2006 * write.vtheatre.net --
This present directory is in English only -- Summary and Intro pages.
I'm afraid that my "Russian Play" (I call it this way, because it's in Russian and I do not like how the Russian title sounds in English) is only a beginning. After 22 years of not writing drama in Russian, I suspect that they are many to follow. I haven't finished this one, but I opened already another directory for "Spring Break" (takes place in 2002).

PS. I have two kinds of the same play: linear (old fashion) play and web-drama (hypertext). You can see the principle in SHOWS directory, where the showcases (directories) are organized according to the open text idea. In short, reader-determined-composition. Reader-as-editor? Anyway, read Virtual Theatre files.
The problem. Writing alone takes so much time and organizing it as a hypertext takes additional time. Besides, I don't fully understand, why the two forms should exist... I didn't think it through... Sometimes I am so tired that I want to go back to a typewriter!
I have to watch myself, switching languages helps. Those pix and sounds I throw into this web-play -- As if the after production cycle? What is it? The play isn't finished yet, but I act, as if it was produced and everything is a matter of history? Interesting.
