I Oughta Be in Pictures
What was it like to see something of mine made into a movie? Fucking cool.
by TJ Dawe
Mike played the male lead in the Canadian tour, and truly owned the role. We’d written a number of plays together, but had never written for the screen - though we’re both huge movie fans. We could have insisted Mike play the lead. We could have insisted on writing the script. But that wasn’t the deal Marc was offering.
I saw the movie four times, over four days of the festival. Full theatre every time. Great response every time. I searched for reviews and tweets incessantly. All glowing.
