THE PAT & ACHILLES PROJECT
playwright, lyricist, storyteller, mediocre ukulele strummer
Welcome to an ongoing personal project of mine. The short version of this project involves a book, several hours in an airport, and three days of uninterrupted time on Thanksgiving break in 2019. And the curiosity that grows from boredom.
The book? A story about Achilles, from the perspective of his lover (yes you know the popular one by the lovely Madeline Miller;)). The airport? Planning ahead for traffic that was not there in the slightest. The time? Hooked by the book from the airport, to be filled with reading for fun, for the first time in years.
And the curiosity? It's something I've never done before, and that's what excites me about it. A musical has to be looked at
from many different perspectives.
I'm not too far into this personal project, but here are *short ukulele sound bites of part of* two songs. The rest is pinned up on my wall a la conspiracy Charlie from it's always Sunny in Philadelphia. Anyways, these songs are from 2 different characters who have reflected desires. Sort of. Ask me about them, I promise I'll talk your ears off.
