Premiered in Greensboro Vermont August 2003
The Ables' House is Green had its premiere screening at The People Barn in Greensboro Vermont on Sunday August 24th 2003. A HUGE thank you to Sally Lonegren for the use of her space, her hospitality, her generosity and her paint chip!
It was a great event for me and I think for those in attendance. We had the good fortune to be so well attended as to have a second screening. On the the festival circuit, God willing. I will post here if and when we get into any festivals.
Was Shot in September 2002 in Greensboro Vermont
Writing the Able's House is Green was not something I had planned to do. It became something that I had to do. The genesis for the story came in the summer of 2001 when I was in Greensboro on vacation with my family. The details are fairly unimportant, suffice it to say that the story is, in some ways, semi-autobiographical. Indeed someone did paint the Able's house green and for reasons that were not clear to me at the time, I was angry. In a way that was embarrassing. I have since come to understand the cause and part of the way through it was to write about it. I began working on the story almost as soon as I got back from that vacation. Then I shelved it as a very busy and successful theater season began. I revisited the script after the last of my shows this year and after talking to some folks and tweaking the script I committed to shooting it.
