The Future

November 12, 2012 Posted by Daniel


The premiere production of Good People Bad Things was a big success. The total audience, over our 12 performances, was 360 people.

We have posted production photos, our CBC review and our many previews and interviews.

Thanks to all who came out to see the show.

And now I’m working on the next stages of Good People Bad Things. I’m planning to continue performing it, and I’m in the process of sorting out where and when.

Stay tuned for updates. If you saw Good People Bad Things, feel free to post comments. And if you’re not yet on our email list, you can join it right here.

Today is the end of our third week of workshop/rehearsal.

And how’s the script coming? Well, slowly but surely. We got a lot done this week, although there is still a lot to do. Four more weeks till tech. It’s dense material, there’s lots of information, I’ve done a lot of writing since our first draft last October and the big question remains: How do we make it work, theatrically?

The good news is we took a look at our first draft, and it basically works, theatrically. So we went, “Oh. We’ve got a script! Worst comes to worst, we can just use that.” But, of course, we want to make it better. And we can. This week, I took a lot of the rewritten scenes and went back to the original versions. But a few things from the new versions are staying in. And a whole bunch of scenes have gone back to the simplicity and straightforwardness they had last fall, but with the story much improved. So all the work so far has been worthwhile. The script is, slowly but surely, getting to where it needs to be.

We’ve got all the pages laid out on the floor of the rehearsal hall (the Rocker at 91 Albert St), and I think it looks really cool, so here are some pictures.

Thanks for reading, and check back next Sunday for another update on the progress of Good People Bad Things, which will be playing October 18-28.

And we’ve got a Facebook Page. Join if you want. Invite your Friends.

And tonight is the beginning of the Jewish New Year. So Shana Tova – a healthy and happy new year.

Looking forward,




big changes

Hi everybody.

As you may have noticed, or as I may have told you by email, there are big changes going on at the Moving Target Theatre Company.

We’ve got a new email program, so I won’t have to spend hours cutting and pasting email addresses every time I send something out (if you’re not on the email list and you want to be, go to the Contact page). We’ve made all kinds of updates to the website. I attended the Magnetic North Theatre Festival and Summerworks in recent months. The plan is, in the next couple of years, to start bringing Moving Target’s original theatre creations to audiences beyond the Perimeter Highway. I may have to swim through the moat.

But most excitingly, I am back in the rehearsal hall with my friend, mentor and director/dramaturg, Chris Gerrard-Pinker. We’re creating a new one-man-show called Good People Bad Things. We spent a couple of weeks working on this project last June, then again last September, and now we have… just over 5 weeks to complete the script, rehearse it and get it up on its feet. The race is on!

Well, actually the race has been on for two weeks now. We started with 59 pages of material and we have generated many more pages. And it’s good material, it’s really interesting, even if it’s not quite a script yet. Yesterday, we sorted all the material into 6 piles. Chris said, “We need paperclips.”

I’m going to be using the home page of this website as a blog. One of my friends has even left a comment on one of the pages! You’re welcome to do the same, maybe it’s a trend that will catch on. Whether you do or not – keep checking this site – I’m planning to write something every Sunday. Who knows what will happen by next Sunday. I don’t think we’ll have a script, but I hope we’ll be well on our way.

Your moving target,
