Wonder of the World

“Wonder of the World," written by David Lindsay-Abaire, is happening at The Empty Space for the next couple of weekends… go see it!!!  This play is filled with lots of laughs and the director, cast, and crew are amazing!!!  I get to help move sets around and help with costume changes this time around… so much fun!  I find myself picking favorite lines during the scenes, while I wait for my cues.  Each time I listen to the show, the list of favorites goes on and on… there are too many good ones!  The gem below inspired me to attempt a macramé purse as a prop for the show and thankfully it turned out to be useable.  As usual, I deviated from the tutorial I “followed” and the single crochet stitches that were required were almost too much for me to finish.  It was meant to be though because it miraculously got done on time.  As much as I would like to keep it (I would actually use it), I think it needs to stay with the actress who plays Lois.  As always, thanks to The Empty Space for letting me be involved in another great show.  It's awesome to see everyone come together and the continued success of The Empty Space.       

LOIS. … It’s good to have projects.

CASS. Yes it is.  I make mosaic tabletops.

LOIS. Crafty.  I do macramé.  Take a look at this.  (Lois pulls a macramé purse out of her barrel.  The words “I Love Bingo” have been stitched into it.)  I made it myself.

CASS. It’s adorable.

LOIS. Thank you.

CASS.  You think you could teach me macramé?

LOIS.  Sure.  It’s real easy once you --- (Suddenly realizes.)  No, I can’t teach you macramé!  I’m here to kill myself!  What’s the matter with you?

CASS.  Sorry, just looking for things to do.

LOIS.  I’m making myself a drink.
