I chose to write a story, rather than a play, just because I thought, being a playwright, a short story might be a more fun challenge.
And, years later, this story, "The Other Room", will be published in the Spring 2012 Penn Review Literary Magazine, a development I never imagined.

To celebrate, there is a book launch event at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 28th, at The Rotunda (4014 Walnut St), where I (and other authors) will read our contributions to this volume. The event is Free, and I hear there will be donuts.
Big thank yous to Penn Review, to the Kelly Writers House (whose ArtsEdge Residency led to this opportunity), and to the student who scrawled "the other room" on that fateful scrap. Thank you as well to all my students, who provided such fruitful terrain from which to write.
