Writer’s Weekend – A Musical

Book by V. Mark Covington, Lyrics by Rebecca Elizabeth Jones and music by Paul R. Bartsch. Produced and Directed by Billy Christopher Maupin.

Workshop on May 11, 2014 at Richmond Triangle Players 

Elizabeth Brown, frustrated, unpublished writer, has arrived at ‘The Porches’, an antebellum bed and breakfast and writer’s retreat in rural Virginia, to facilitate a weekend writer’s workshop and whip a group of aspiring writers into literary shape. And she has her work cut out for her.  Her group includes, Prescott Moore, formerly Captain Fabulous, a B-grade television actor, attempting fine tune his play Rickets -The Musical, but when he encounters Zebula Nebulon, self published science fiction writer and a consummate fan, his former identity returns to haunt him.  Ed. R. Thompson, retired newspaper reporter, turned crime noir novelist, butts heads with Sojourn Word, angry slam poet from the suburbs. Desiree Lamoure, successful romance writer, and Elizabeth’s former English teacher, sets her bodice ripping sights on seducing Miles Stanley, a young technical writer who specializes in trains. The writers perform songs about thier respective genres as they go through hook-ups and throw downs and genre switches as they hone their craft. Now to top it off, a major literary agency has sent their most critical agent, Roxanne Gold to attend the group’s end of workshop recital.
