On June 16th, 2012, I read an excerpt from Object of Her Affection at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut
In the excerpt, a woman who develops intimate relationships with inanimate objects discovers that the bridge she has come to love has been cheating on her.
The reading was part of the 2012 National Puppetry Conference that ran from June 6th-17th. At the conference, I was part of a writing for puppetry intensive with mentor, Ronnie Burkett, a Toronto-based puppet artist, best known for his original theatrical plays for adults, performed with marionettes.
The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center is the country’s preeminent organization dedicated to the development of new works and new voices for the stage. Located in Waterford, Connecticut, it has launched some of the most important voices and works in American theater and has revolutionized the way new work is developed. The Center is home to The National Puppetry Conference, which encourages puppet artists to create through the visual and kinetic form of the puppet, to push beyond boundaries, and develop new works.
