FYI - Don't forget that Mal's St. Paddy's Day Parade is scheduled for this Saturday in downtown Jackson! I'll be marching, and if you see me, holler! I'll toss some swag your way!
ALSO on Saturday, I'll be in a staged reading of a new play at New Stage Theatre. The play, titled Solving Sunflowers, is about a young, down-on-her-luck widow in New Mexico. Nessa gets fired from her crummy job as a waitress, and her loopy mom spends their measley nest egg to become an Internet pastor. Throw in a greedy theme park developer, several hot Russian mail-order brides, and a sweet deputy sheriff, and you've got a pretty hilarious comedy.
The play was written by Patricia Milton, who is flying in from California on Saturday to meet us! (Woo to the hoo!) House opens at 7 p.m., and the reading will begin at 7:30 p.m. After the reading, we'll have a quick talk back with the audience. Admission is free!
