TWISTED love & SPEAK on the stage

Thank you, elves at! TWISTED was named one of their Best Teen Books of 2007!!

SPEAK is coming the stage in Central New York this weekend!! It is premiering at one of my alma maters, Fayetteville-Manlius High School, and in a few weeks it will be onstage at my almost-mater, Nottingham High School. All details here. (Note: the production is not suitable for little kids – get a babysitter, please.) The director, Steve Braddock, is the fellow who brought FEVER 1793 to the stage a couple of years ago. I am very excited to see his adaptation, and see what the actors have done with the material.

Post Standard reporter Laura Ryan attended a rehearsal and has some great quotes from Steve (and a couple from me).

The Syracuse New Times has an article, too, and photos of rehearsal. One note – I did not attend Nottingham, as the article says, but if we hadn’t moved the summer before high school started, I would have.

In closing – what would Charles think?

  1. sorry to post a question, but..

    Is it possible to write a research paper on you/your books/some aspect of them? I mean, possible? I want to write my research paper, at least 7 historical sources, on your books. Because your my author hero, it would be awesome. I assume I just need to narrow my subject down a bit more..are there any “links” between all your books?
    I would love to ramble about Speak, Catalyst and Twisted for 9 pages! I find that as I read Catalyst more and more it is just as special to me as Speak was and has been since 8th grade, 6 years ago. Everything in Catalyst is beautiful, even Terri Lynch.. : ) Maybe that is what makes it so beautiful…And I love that you wrote Twisted from a male perspective. Yay.

  2. Re: sorry to post a question, but..

    You don’t need my permission to write a paper about me or my books, but thank you very much for asking anyway.

    I don’t know if there are links between my books. What do you think?

    (I adore the fact that you like Teri LItch. She is one of my favorite characters.)

    I can’t take credit for directing it. Wish I had. Hard for a director by trade to sit and watch, but a great learning experience. See you there.

  4. Congrats!

    Oh, man, now I wish my theatre company would do Speak. That was be amazing.

    It’s great that Speak has made it through book, film and now stage play.
