Coming up on the Homestretch, Teching Jack of Diamonds

Scot Augustson's Jack of Diamonds is really a lovely little play, sad and sentimental, yet in its way hopeful and full of love. It's structured as two simultaneous vignettes, a fugue of two moments separated by time, skillfully connected to allow glimpses of a tragedy from seemingly disparate, irreconcilable perspectives. It allows plenty of insight, yet leaves room for wonder and inference. I like this script a lot.

And, while we're on to good news, we aren't behind schedule anymore. It's amazing what a lot of hustle and a lot of talent will do for you.
