"The test of an adventure is that when you’re in the middle of it, you say to yourself, ‘Oh, now I’ve got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.’ And the sign that something’s wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure."

  • Question: Hey Coop, are you still writing? Did your book ever end up getting picked up yet? - virtualtattoo
  • Answer:

    I am still writing! Recently I’ve turned to writing plays because I’ve been so busy with school. The book I was writing is currently somewhere between a third and fourth draft, but it’s on the back burner. My latest novel project has barely taken off the ground.

    However! I did write and produce a play! It played to sold out audiences! And I submitted a (different) one-act play to a BC wide playwrighting contest. They announce the finalists this month, so I’m eager to hear back!

    Once I’m finished school (which is SOON! I have one more exam until I graduate) I plan on writing a LOT more. One day I’ll get those books published too. :)

Angels & Airwaves. Check that out. They also released one of their albums totally for free online just to spite their producers.

Being in theatre is weird because all you do is complain about the long hours and that one director that you can’t stand, but the second someone tells you to quit or that it’s dumb to keep doing theatre you defend it. Kinda like family; underneath all the mocking and whining, theatre is home, it’s not what you do, but who you are.

The Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda by Jennifer Camp at the Actors Workshop Theatre as part of the 15th Annual Directors Festival. April 2014. Directed by Andrew G. Cooper.

Lillian and Ben are attracted to one another. The only trouble is they’ve never met. Or even spoken, for that matter. They’ve only seen each other in the lobby of the Museum of Natural History where each, for their own reasons, has been drawn. Once they notice each other, the unexpected possibility of love begins to take shape as they work up the nerve, over the course of four weeks, to speak to the other person. Through the use of monologues, imaginary conversations and a shared dream, this unlikely duo - a video game designer and a literature professor - connect in a profound and hilarious way. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 29th Series.

Thirteen year old Ashol-Pan and her golden eagle. From BBC News:

The Kazakhs of the Altai mountain range in western Mongolia are the only people that hunt with golden eagles, and today there are around 400 practising falconers. Ashol-Pan, the daughter of a particularly celebrated hunter, may well be the country’s only apprentice huntress.

April 13 would have been playwright Lanford Wilson's 77th birthday, so we're celebrating him by featuring his work on this week's Manuscript Monday. Wilson passed away in 2011 and left his papers to the University of Missouri Libraries. The collection includes correspondence, working notebooks, drafts and proof copies, and well as work related to Wilson's personal interests, such as gardening and art collecting.

The manuscripts featured here relate to Wilson’s plays A Sense of Place and Fifth of July, which was recently produced on campus by the MU Theatre Department. It’s fascinating to watch Wilson at work through these pages, as he adds, edits and deletes the texts of his plays.  

An unexpected bonus: we also found Wilson’s recipe for tomato tart, which sounds delicious. Let us know if you try it!

These are so beautiful. It’s like a glimpse into his mind leaked onto these pages.
