I didn't get alot of laughs though, although that might be in part because half the audience was old men, and they prefer plays about old men sitting around talking about numismatics. I did get a laugh on this line - but I should hope so, if you can't get a laugh about masturbation it's time to hang it up:
Maybe Nora really does have a crush on Tommy. Does he have a girlfriend?
Well, on his Facebook profile it says “it’s complicated.”
A geek and his hand – what’s so complicated?
The women especially like the play - they each told me since the reading how much they enjoyed it. Well what's not to like? The female characters aren't saps (well Nora is at first, but she eventually breaks out) or personality-free killing machine ladybots or other typical shit roles that female actors are given. We're doing the next 30 pages at NYCPlaywrights in December. By spring I expect it will be ready to go.
