Last night at Opus Nostrum (Headland’s theater) we all met to find out which play we were doing and whom of us would be in the cast. I volunteered to not be cast out of trepidation; or was it just plain fear?
The director turned down my request; so I am now cast as Willa Mae Wilcox in John Patrick’s A Bad Year for Tomatoes. My character is described as a “furtive, birdlike, little woman.” Well I can be secretive, and flighty, but no one has ever called me little. As Schultz says in Hogan’s Heroes: “Very Interesting!”
