A very respected Spokane actor and director, Michael Weaver (no relation), retweeted about the opportunity on Twitter and I entered later that day. He’s been an online cheerleader as I’ve gone through the process. The feedback would have been helpful even if the play wasn’t selected for the festival. In particular, WILDsound recommended I take another look at the character of Sloth and stretch him beyond my initial concept as just a really sleepy guy. Overall, it was supportive feedback that showed someone else thinks there’s something here worth pursuing. Which is invaluable as a beginning playwright.
