CHALLENGE MODE / by Ellen Steves


Last week, the Barelight Bears took on a particularly intense challenge. We gave ourselves one week to write a full-length play. We each received writing prompts (so we could not plan beforehand) on Wednesday, January 3rd @ 8:00 pm. By 8:00pm the following Wednesday, we had to have e-mailed copies of our scripts to the group.

There were no rules, except it needed to be 60 pages minimum.

I am proud to present the fruit of my insane labor, BEEFCAKE, a play of Greek proportions about a group of guys who work out for the lord.

The pressure of the time limit was intense, and I think made for some very creative work. It will be exciting to watch as each Bear develops their script over the next several months.
