HURRICANE MASTERMIND NOW JUST A TROPICAL DEPRESSION

...but it could build in strength back to a category one.



Last night was the close of Hurricane Season at the Eclectic Company Theatre, of which Mastermind was a part. After the show, there was the presentation of the judged awards as well as audience awards. Mastermind was honored with Audience Awards for Best Actor (Brad Wilcox) and Best Playwriting.
I am proud that we won the awards we did tonight. Michael wrote a play worthy of Joss Whedon that had both clever, brilliantly funny dialog as well as deep, complicated personal relationship issues. He gave us plenty to play with!
-Susan Lee, director
I'll be cutting her a check forthwith.

Hurricane Season is an annual playwriting competition/festival at ECT. This year, nine plays were chosen out of more than 100. Mastermind was selected as one of the top six best plays and was sent (with the other five) to an outside panel of judges to select the top three. They didn't pick Mastermind.

The juried winner was Spoken For a delightful, creative and funny piece, by S.L. Daniels, set in a world where the affluent can hire people to speak for them, affording them the luxury of being inarticulate, grunting single words and having it translated into coherent thoughts. In this case, it's about two speakers (one very good at their job, one not so much) and the rock stars their work for and fall in love with.
