First draft,,of short bio

Casting notice: “Middle-aged. Overweight. Depressed. Needs to make music.”

 Write back, “Not balding or overweight. Don't sing or play instrument…but I know this guy.” 

So we meet outside in Washington Square Park. Beautiful summer day. And we talk. Share my history, my need to act, my need to join the world. No monologue. No sides.

 He describes film. I sing into his iPhone. Mockingbird. Last moments of Bancroft in The Miracle Worker. 

Cast. Me. Lead. Open Mic. I sing. I play guitar. 
Film shows in festivals in Seoul, in Cork, in Brussels, in Denver, in New York.

And I’ve joined the world.
