The first staged reading of Unvarnished was held December 16, 2014, as part of the Member Showcase at Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin, Illinois. Heartfelt thanks to the small but supportive audience who joined us for the evening.

Unvarnished's social media presence has expanded to Tumblr, which will serve as the production blog as well as sharing other content about Lizzie and the Pre-Raphaelites; and to YouTube, where I'll be sharing thoughts on the creation process in a vlog format.

While revisions to the text and production plans continue to move along, here's a taste of the December 16 reading for those who were uanble to attend:

I look forward to meeting you online as the adventure continues!
