Happy Month of May Older Americans Month. I love the idea of celebrating a whole month for the elderly Americans. You may not be there yet but one day you may wake up and find you’re a grandparent just like me.

It’s also almost Sunday and time to share our snippets so let’s have at it. My story is titled Spreading Her Wings. Sally Kirkwood is the friendly neighborhood reporter who helps Teresa find her daughter Misty, self involved in preparing for a Broadway audition.
As many of you know I was an actor in NYC for years. My take on this story is very real.

excerpt in eight:
In the darkened theatre, several men sat talking, computers on laps, taking notes while the director and his assistant rubbed their hands in anticipation.

Jerry Kaufman, the chief producer’s job was to gather the money to get the play up and running and already the men here had already pledged a bunch of dough.

The last man to arrive came up the aisle with a gawky girl in tow.

“Oh shit, please tell me she’s not the daughter he wants as the lead in the play.”

Seymour, his assistant, nudged him in the arm and said, “Jerry, she’s the girl O’Malley wants as the lead
and right away I can tell she’s a triple threat; can’t dance, can’t sing, can’t act.”

“The nerve of him coming in late when all the boys and girls are already lined up.”

“Money makes the world go around, Jerry so work with it and say hello at least.”

Jerry rose from his slump in the auditorium; “Hi Mr. O’Malley. How are you and who is this young lady?”

Hi Gang. Here we are again with stories to share on Sunday. Love it. Today, I continue with one more eight from Before the Final Curtain. This is the last eight from the third of my series of Mature Romance, The Beginning. . .Not The End.

In this eight, the two stars, Becca Morgan and Chris Williams, are on  the Drama Bus traveling to NYC for the first read-thru of “Honor Thy Mother, Please” a new comedy with a heart. They talk about their past history and read the first scene in the play.


Chris reads the stage directions. He’s not in this scene.: The play begins with a lot of action, background mumbling, moving furniture as a bewildered Becca stands stage left watching her belongings brought downstairs to the lower level of her home. Her daughter Laura and son-in-law Max are moving in and taking over. Chris laughs at the first line in the play.

Becca: “Basement? I don’t live in the basement.”

Laura: “It’s not the basement, Mom, it’s the lower level.”

Becca: “So why don’t you live there?”

Laura: “Mom, we need more room, there are two of us and. . .”

Becca: “Thanks for reminding me, honey, I almost forgot your daddy died.”

Laura: “And Max needs space for an office so it will be just fine, you’ll see.”

Chris cuts in and says, “I love you, I mean I love it, I mean I do love you, Becca.”

“ I’m not into anything but truth with no bullshit allowed, Chris”

“The whole truth and nothing but, dear heart and before the final curtain, you will know.”
