I was lucky enough to perform the show at Swarthmore College Alumni Weekend in June. It was great to be back in the Frear Theater after so many years. Belated thanks to the Alumni Office, Geoff Semenuk, Alison Emmerich, Wendy Waltman, Scott Burgess, Tara Webb and the staff of the Lang Performing Arts Center. And thanks to my fellow alumni for packing the house and making this an incredible weekend.
I had a great review from TheaterJones.com
“Hands down, Lesley Tsina’s Lord of the Files is the funniest show of the second Dallas Solo Fest.”

I did an interview with Linda Smith at TheaterJones, where we go pretty in-depth about the development of the show.
My show was mentioned in JoAnn Holt’s column in Dallas’ Focus Daily News. Opening this week!
I am having living room preview #3 tonight and then I fly to Dallas. So far the response from my friends eating chips on my couch has been overwhelming : )
I did an interview with The Solo Performer where we talked about the development of Lord of the Files. The Solo Performer is cool blog and a great resource for performers.
Dallas Solo Fest opens this week. The lineup for week one is awesome. I am bummed that I won’t be able to see a couple of the shows because I’m not in town until week two. My show opens on June 11th. Tell your friends!
If you’re coming to the Dallas Solo Fest, I’ll be teaching a writing workshop. You can sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In the Weeds: Getting Unstuck While Developing Your Show
There’s an interesting, and often endless-seeming middle ground between the raw idea for a show and a show with a shape. This is a workshop for getting unstuck. We’ll do group writing and performing exercises to figure out what’s important to the story, and to you. And we’ll talk about strategies for finishing and next steps. Please bring ideas, notes, sections, outlines, sources of inspiration and other half-finished thoughts.
Dates/Times: Saturday, June 13 @ 2:30 pm
Workshop duration: 2.5 hours
Intended for: Writers/performers
Cost of workshop: $30
Class limit: 10 people maximum

My last show at the Vancouver Fringe will be today, Sunday at 5:30. We’ve sold out the last two shows pretty close to showtime, so come early, or buy online if you can.
This has been a really wonderful Fringe, and thanks to everyone who’s come out to the show, stayed to chat afterward, tweeted the show or talked about it in line. I hope to come back again soon.
