Just when I was mourning the loss of community events on Cortes in general, and the performing arts here in particular, the experience of working on Yvonne’s Kipp’s radio play “Going Down?” has been a small miracle. I admit, I thought the odds of it coming off as scheduled, and as Yvonne envisioned, were slim, and I could not have been more wrong. Everybody showed up at the first rehearsal on time, ready to work. Everybody showed up for the Zoom conference calls. Cast members got together on their own. Yvonne gave notes, made small changes, offered encouragement and suggestions, and kept everyone in the loop. Her play is funny, touching, and relevant, and, being theater of the mind, “Going Down?” will be unique for each person who listens. A huge thank-you to Yvonne, Bryan at CKTZ, and the cast; Greg, Adam, Sheryl, Bronson and Devon. It was a blast and a privilege to be a part of it. “Going Down?” is coming soon to a radio near you.
