The 3-Play Project
“What the hell is a finance guy doing writing plays?”
Four years ago, I heard something on the radio that sparked an idea for a story. Three years and three scripts later, I was eager to hear how all that sounded in action. As a first-time playwright/screenwriter, though, I was pretty sure that finding a willing production company would be, well, tough. So, I decided to produce these works on my own.
As audio dramas.
Soon after, I had the good fortune to meet a dynamic fourth-year drama student at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School for the performing arts. An initially skeptical colleague (whose quoted reaction sits atop this note) was kind enough to introduce us. Through that student, I met another, and another. Before long, my payroll swelled to include seven actors and two musicians (one of which with a talent for sound engineering) from Hartt, and three fourth-year illustration majors, thanks to the recommendation of another colleague at the Hartford Art School.
The collection of audio dramas that follows was made possible by these remarkably versatile young artists. Their efforts are fully attributed, and their contact information is linked.
