A first draft was finished in 2002.
I began heavily revising it in late 2003. The current draft was finished in 2005 and is radically different from the draft that was heard at the Think Tank. It took much longer time to get it right than I thought it would.
I'm currently looking for a dress shop in LA to produce it in. If you know of one, email me.
Here's the entry for its last New York reading in late 2006.
I've written about it before, so let's not crap around...
Dressing the Girl
Drama, full length, one intermission (optional).
Anne and Ian, once romantically involved, still emotionally and intellectually entangled, try to pick up where they left off. Unfortunately, Anne hates sex and Ian’s recent decision to quit drinking has left him thirsty for just about any diversion he can find. Searching for a way into Anne, he starts buying her the same dress over and over again even though it doesn’t fit. His relentless pursuit eventually pushes him into the arms of a dress shop girl who shows him just how dangerous a dress can be.
