It is unbelievable how fast this month has gone by. Spring semester is finally in full swing! It started off slow with several snow days, but we are finally underway. This semester is proving to be a busy but wonderful one. I feel honored to say that this semester I am helping my friend Heidi Hostetler with her two honor theses! She is a double major in film and theatre. For her film thesis she is making a 20-minute film and for her theatre thesis she is directing and producing a full length play. The play, Smell of the Kill by Michele Lowe, is a dark comedy about three women who are faced with the difficult decision of what to do with their awful husbands, when the men accidentally lock themselves in a meat locker. This wickedly smart play brings life and takes these three women who are seemingly stock characters and gives them depth. I am playing the character of Molly in this piece. Molly’s husband Danny is stalking her, obsessively having her call him every two hours. However much Danny shows Molly his “love”, he will not have sex with her, which complicates Molly’s dreams of having a houseful of children. The other two women, Nicky and Debra, have equally intriguing and complicated relationships with their husbands. So far rehearsals have been great. I am thrilled to be a part of Heidi’s process. Her film has also been an adventure. Eventually this semester I will also playing a small role in her film, however thus far I have been happy to help as her crew. The weekend before spring semester officially started we drove down to North Carolina to film the house sequences. It was a great weekend, even though we did get snowed in an extra day! I took lots of pictures for Heidi and so you all could enjoy the process as well!
