Seedlings – 15 Years Later

You know how sometimes you do things because that’s what you do and you just keep doing them because no one else has stepped up and then the years pass and even though a lot of the time you find yourself asking yourself, “Why am I doing this, again?”… there…

Getting Cozy in Blank’s Living Room Series

Since last fall, I’ve been working with the #newplay-loving group at The Blank Theatre as a member of the Living Room Series “Artistic Committee.” Very fancy.  Plays are read. Playwrights are championed. Wine is consumed. It’s been a terrific experience which connects a lot of the stuff I already do…

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Especially excited to take part in Virginia Avenue Project’s “One-on-One” plays again this year, writing a play specifically for a young actor (hey Carolina!) and an adult mentor (the one and only Amir Levi – what else can I say?).  This year’s theme is “Floored,” and the group of writers…

“Chicken Shoot” in Road Summer Playwrights Festival July 29th

Thrilled to be part of SPF6 at The Road Theatre Company – once again, the Road artists are so very cool. As I can’t help keep mentioning, I’m crazy for the poster for my play, “Chicken Shoot.”  AND I’m really fortunate to work with director Michelle Gillette and actors Hilary J. Schwartz & Lorianne Hill.

“Chicken Shoot” is a short comedy about crimes and validation.  When two half-sisters visit an abandoned aerospace compound, absurd government secrets shed an unexpected light on toxic family truths. The night also features my friend Stephanie Walker’s full-length “The Art of Disappearing,” directed by John Gowans. See you then for food, drinks, music and two plays by LA women playwrights! Performances are at The Road on Magnolia in the NoHo Senior Arts Colony, 10747 Magnolia Blvd.

No reservations are necessary; tickets are by donation only ($15 suggested). More info: http://www.roadtheatre.org/chicken-shoot-by-jennie-webb/

Thank you to all at The Road for involving me again this year, especially the producers including Scott Alan Smith and Carlyle King. A special shout out to Tiffany Antone and the artists involved in Little Black Dress INK‘s Female Playwrights ONSTAGE, where “Chicken Shoot” was a Finalist. And thanks to my sweet husband Jim for helping with the image, below, and also for some fab SFX for the reading – I am laughing already!
