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.
Great new review. Thank you, Zouch Magazine!
“Lesley Tsina’s hilarious play, Lord of the Files, is one of those must-see plays for anybody who has ever worked for a corporation, . . .”

Lord of the Files got a great review in Plank Magazine today:
“There is something about the story of Lord of the Files that rings so true, so close to the spinal cord of so many artists and art enthusiasts…it is easy to see why people are flocking to this understated wonder.”

This is the one day of the Vancouver Fringe where you can see both my show, Lord of the FILES and an actual adaptation of Lord of the FLIES, called Lord of the Flies: Remixed, in the same day.
2:00pm Lord of the Flies: Remixed – Circle Point, Granville Island
This remixed version of the novel is part of a week-long workshop with a cast of teens by The Only Animal. It’s a cool project.
7:00pm Lord of the Files – False Creek Gym, Granville Island
I’m taping tonight’s show, so it would be a great night to come by. Also, if you go to both, you can totally confuse your friends. Or have bragging rights. Or something.
Hey – I will be doing standup at the Fringe Open Mic tonight at 7. There will be a lot of cool acts by various Fringe performers. Come on by!
Saturday, Sept 6th – 7-8 pm
Agro Cafe/The Fringe Bar
