Teresa LeYung-Ryan’s Play (monologue) a Winner of the 2012 Redwood Writers Playwriting Contest
3 April 2012
Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan here to share sweet news with you.
At 8:19pm this evening I received a phone call from Linda Loveland Reid, telling me that my 10-minute play Answer Me Now has been chosen as one of the nine plays to be produced. I listened to Linda as she explained that directors will be selected, auditions will be scheduled, then casting, and rehearsals, and that the plays would be performed at the annual Redwood Writers Play Festival on June 29, 30 and July 1, 2012 in California.
Performances will be June 29, Friday at 8pm; June 30, Saturday at 2pm and 8pm; and July 1, Sunday at 2pm. Tickets will be $16 per person.
at Santa Rosa’s premier theater, 6th Street Playhouse. The plays will be presented on 6th Street’s Studio stage.
I’m feeling proud and sad at the same time; my play is a monologue (middle-aged daughter talking to her mother); I miss my mom so much.
Thank you, Linda Loveland Reid, for your generosity in creating the annual Redwood Writers Playwriting Contest. Thank you, judges Natasha Carter-Yim, Michael Fontaine and Lennie Dean. Thank you to fellow playwrights and everyone involved in this project.
Thank you, dear Lynn Scott, for your editing my play.
Last week I had already asked dear Elisa Sasa Southard to attend the April 15, 2012 meeting with me, winning or not, so that we could cheer for all the playwrights. Tonight, after receiving the call from Linda . . . I called dear Luisa Adams. Sasa could still be on her trip. It’s too late to call other pals, so, I write this blog post. Gotta email my sis (teaching abroad) and KB in Australia!
Kim McMillon, I’m thinking of you. Your plays have inspired me so much!
Kathryn G. McCarty, thank you for inspiring me with your writing and directing plays, and for giving me the thrill to be on stage for the fundraiser performance of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues to benefit Community Violence Solutions.
Carol Sheldon, you have inspired me too. I look forward to seeing your new play this month.
Chandra Garsson, I’m thinking of you too. Your films have inspired me so much! Last month Chandra had offered to film me performing Answer Me Now so that I would have a Chandra Garsson production for my YouTube channel; I guess I better memorize my own lines… in addition to attending some of the rehearsals (as the playwright, not actor) when casting has been completed for the Redwood Writers Play Festival.
Screenwriter and screenwriting teacher Terrel Seltzer, thank you for having coached us on what a compelling story is.
Being a writer is a reward! Keep writing!

Here’s the email that I just received from Linda.
A huge thank you to judges Natasha Carter-Yim, Michael Fontaine and Lennie Dean. We wish that every play could have been chosen and appreciate everyone who participated.
The winners will be recognized at the April 15, 2012 Redwood Writer general meeting at the Flamingo Hotel at 2:30.
The judges will be in attendance to help recognize the winning playwrights. It is especially exciting this year, as the annual Redwood Writers Play Festival on June 29/30 and July 1, 2012 will be in partnership with Santa Rosa’s premier theater, 6th Street Playhouse. The plays will be presented on 6th Street’s Studio stage. Stand-by for lots more on that front, but for now, please help us celebrate our winning playwrights, listed below in alpha order:
