Blog #8: Audits and new adventures
Overview of week’s activities:
1) audit compliance requirements
2) avenues for exploration open up
This week has been reserved for catching up on all those tasks that were postponed to concentrate on the reading and signing off on the grant requirements. There’s been a disproportionate amount of time, energy, and money put into securing the grant against the quite small amount we received for the project (all of which went to the director). So the question has to be: was it worth it? That is, was all the personal time, effort and money pout into securing the grant worth the employment of a professional director? Did my playwriting benefit enough for all that effort and expense? I am very tempted to say “No” and a resounding “No” at that. If anything I would say it has damaged the process, because the actors became jittery and insecure about the project once they heard what the director said about it. They then stampeded for the door and disappeared into a cloud of anxiety like a herd of Thompson gazelles with the scent of lion in their nostrils. Having said that, the process did make a few things clearer for me (see previous blog) and I suspect, the benefits of both the grant process and the secondment of a professional director might become more apparent in the future.
