My one act play, Cafe Deux Parfaits, which was first produced last month at Surfacing, An Emerging Playwrights' Festival in St. Louis, MO, has just been selected to be performed at Theatre Southwest's Festival of Originals in Houston, TX. It will have a nine night run from July 25 - August 5, and will be performed alongside 4 other shows.  The producer said there were over 600 submissions.  She also told me they've been in business for 52 years and that people come from all over to see the festival (this is their 11th annual). 

I see on their website that they're about to hold auditions. WOWIE!

I'm going to try to get there for opening night. 
Are any of you in the Houston area?

thatgirlygirl -- This is so fantastic! I'm not in the Houston area or anywhere near, but I'll be rooting for you on opening night! And I bet you'll be in the audience, mouthing each word right along with the actors, no?

Yay for you!

Ohhh, it's getting close! I wish I'd read about this earlier and I would have delayed my last trip to Houston a few weeks.

Here's to a great opening night!  :drinking

You are so awesome, tg!!!

But you forgot to mention that your play was also performed as a readers' theater in Honesdale, PA, to thunderous applause and hysterical laughter.  :applause
