Speaking of which...
...here's a production shot from Wet Paint, the piece in Dead of Winter that I wrote specifically for The Bluestockings and which will be a world premiere. Soon, we'll have a short promotional film on The Bluestocking's website; I'll let people know when it's up and running.
The still's from a seance that begins to get a little...odd.
