Thursday, 27 November 2008


Two months have gone by so fast. Dyssing Monadys has now finished. So much has happend, we have met so many people, worked with so many writers, poets and filmakers, actors and directors.

The concept was to create an event designed for us - dyslexic storytellers, to tell our storys, our way. A place were there was no need to apologies for our erros or our weeknesses, becouse here - at the festival, we were the main stars. Our weekenesses were not important. We were seen as storytellers and for a while, people, the audenice, forgot we were dyslexic.

The audenice were often suprised and the work was so good, people even questioned if we were really dyslexic. This just show how little the genral public know about dyslexia.

We came out of the creative closet. Me included.

    A Wonderful Surprise

    I purposely made sure that I didn’t look at the script prior to the performance. By doing this it will give me a fresh approach to the play. In a strange way I’ve never felt fully connected when I see my plays acted. It’s as if someone else had written it. On Oct. 6th when the lights went down and the play started I was totally connected. The night “LD” was performed was the best theatrical event of my playwriting career.
    Two amazingly talented actors and a very gifted talented director caught every nuance and every dramatic moment of my play. And that’s saying something because I’ve worked with the creative people in my other plays. They never reached height of perfection that Ms. Sorczuk and company had. Considering that I wasn’t present during the creative process made the event more exciting and a wonderful surprise.

    I was a little concern about the Q & A afterwards. I never done it before. The audience members made me feel at ease. The questions were challenging and their interest in dyslexia very moving. At the end of the evening a fella told me that he wasn’t diagnosed until he was in his mid thirties and that the could identify with the characters. In every performance of this play I’ve always had people approach me with stories about themselves or loved ones effect by this disability. With these conversations I feel that I’ve done my job as an artist. I’ve opened a dialog for audience to talk freely about living with dyslexia. That was always my goal for “LD” when I wrote it.
