    X is back in another Solo-Shadow-Session but instead of offering a Confessional, this time he’s preparing to share some bad news and hoping the audience can help him practice the sad saga he has to share with the Other Shadows. Join X for this theatrical Eulogy to a Storyteller, a Tale of Woe he has to weave to soothe the sorrow.

    Having just experienced two drastically different spectrums of my theatrical adventures, I thought it was a good time to refresh this Theatrically Nasty Thoughts series of writings I tried to keep going moons ago … thinking on the work and processes helps enrich my experience overall – this is the time for reflection and an analytic approach to what happened so I can learn to use or avoid certain behaviours in the future. When I’m in a project, I’m *in* it with a much different frame of mind than what I’m doing here …

    I’ll be delving DEEP into this past year’s work on my own solo piece, Are You In ISOLATION JONES, in and over which I had complete control and involvement in all aspects, and contrasting/comparing that with the group-oriented work I was fortunate to absorb with The Next Folding Theatre Company’s production of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya.

    I’m going to follow my year, beginning with spring 2022 … [READ MORE OF THE NASTY THOUGHT >>>]



    Ducky & Murdock
    May Spring this year

    Crystal Chettiar & Michael Holmes-Lauder rehearsing Standing At Opposite Ends Are Ducky & Murdock

    STANDING AT OPPOSITE ENDS ARE DUCKY & MURDOCK
    written by Scott Shannon

    CAST/CREW

    Writer / Director – Scott Shannon

    A seemingly simple story about a young woman and young man in love during wartime, but with a Nasty touch from the Shadows.



    STANDING AT OPPOSITE ENDS ARE DUCKY & MURDOCK
    Notes – Nov/2022

    Some plans are once again in the works … time will tell but hoping so much that we can finally bring this story to a “stage” of sorts … Ducky & Murdock need to play for an audience*.

    * This play is also exploring that unknown future as the world where my plays occur – everything I’ve completed or am currently working on ties into “The Great Seclusion” … but this story veers away in a different direction than the Shadows-saga I’ve recently carved out.
