so, we continue with scenes from my play-in-progress. here is what i think will be the beginning of the play. you see, i don’t write from A-Z. i usually think out the whole play before i start committing words to paper. then, i start with the key scenes that really move me. in this case, DEAR ZACH. then, i write other scenes that determine whether i should stick to my original idea, or improvise to make it better. BROKEN CONDOM is an example of a scene that was not in my original plan. but while writing the other scenes, i decided they were all so realistic, and i wanted to inject a sense of P-L-A-Y. broken condom was that scene, and i think that it made the play edgy. now, enjoy what will be the first scene. find the music on youtube, play it with the cue, and sing along. have fun!
