Solstice isn’t until June 20, but I think it’s hot enough in some places to count as summer. Cold drinks are a fine antidote to heat and humidity, and Starbucks cards are always popular as giveaways. QED.
In addition, this is a fairly easy prize for me to mail from out of town. Yep, I’m on the road again — but this time in Alaska.
Specifically, I’m attending the 24th annual Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez (that’s pronounced val-DEEZ, incidentally). For the next week I’ll be attending classes and staged readings, including a full-length work by my BFF Linda B, “The Cooter Creek Passion Play.”
In the evenings they’ll be reprising productions of several plays that I missed the first time around due to previous trips plus a couple of new ones. I’m particularly interested in “Good Men Wanted,” which is about women who fought during the Civil War, and “Annapurna,” a drama about a dying poet confronted by his estranged wife (the actor, Kevin T. Bennett, is really, really good).
About that Starbucks…
