madgastronomer asked: Any chance those of us on the other end of the country could see the script, since we can't see a production?

There used to be a website, OffBook Market, where I had the script up for sale at a reasonable price, but that’s gone now. I have to look into other options that will allow me to keep full ownership of my work, but as soon as I find something that works, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.

zorawitch asked: How long ago did you write it? Do you have a large cast?

I started writing Tulpa, or Anne&Me on my LiveJournal back in October 2009. By April 2010 I had a draft I was willing to show to the public. Since then it’s been a process of honing and refining through several staged readings, and in June of this year I finally had the first production.

The cast would be very small. There are only 4 characters: [Name] (protagonist), “Anne Hathaway&” (duh), and 2 Guardian Angels of Blackness.

Robert Jensen, “The Color of the Race Problem Is White”

Description from the Video: In The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. DuBois suggested that the question white people so often want to ask black people is, How does it feel to be a problem? This program turns the tables and recognizes some simple facts: Race problems have their roots in a system of white supremacy. White people invented white supremacy. Therefore, the color of the race problem is white. White people are the problem. White people have to ask ourselves: How does it feel to be a problem?

“ I don’t think white people, generally, understand the full meaning of racist discriminatory behaviors directed toward Americans of African descent. They seem to see each act of discrimination or any act of violence as an “isolated” event. As a result, most white Americans cannot understand the strong reaction manifested by blacks when such events occur. They feel that blacks tend to “over-react.” They forget that in most cases, we live lives of quiet desperation generated by a litany of daily large and small events that whether or not by design, remind us of our “place” in American society.

“ Dialogue is a powerful gesture of love. Caring talk is a sweet communion that deepens our bonds. We can show the depths of our care by the way we speak in all areas of our lives, both public and private. Our words can evoke the sense of respect and profound acknowledgment of how precious we are to one another. Language can convey a sense of the sacred.

“ There comes a point when you just love someone. Not because they’re good, or bad, or anything really. You just love them. It doesn’t mean you’ll be together forever. It doesn’t mean you won’t hurt each other. It just mean you love them. Sometimes in spite of who they are, and sometimes because of who they are. And you know that they love you, sometimes because of who you are, and sometimes in spite of it.
