Everybody Does It – Central New Writing Night

Sophie’s had a rough night and she’s going to tell you all about it. She did everything right, followed all the rules. Didn’t she? I wrote and performed this as a work-in-progress for Central’s New Writing Night. In keeping with my ‘voice’ it’s NSFW (no, […]
