''Whenever I read the synopsis for I’m Always on My Mind, I could immediately see the full potential and scope of the project; therefore, I knew what my years of experience as a writer could bring to this production. In the new world of social media you’re broadcasting yourself; that feeds into the narcissistic element of culture. The subject of narcissism, is a realistic matter, however, I wrote the play in a manner that would not be offensive to anyone, therefore, the comedy eliminates has a kernel of truth behind it and that’s what makes all good comedy come to life''. ~ Scott Rolfe Josephson
Linda Leonard(Director), Linda is the director for 'I’m Always on My Mind' and 'Living with Rejection' (2016 production). Leonard's experience spans over 35 years in the areas of directing and acting in the theatre, film and television arena. She has worked on such shows as American Crime and Salem. Leonard also been fortunate to work in New York City on and off Broadway and in other major markets like LA, Chicago and Abroad, on national tours.
''It’s so exciting to be on the forefront, helping to bring the characters in each production to life. They are complete opposites with different backgrounds. The character Brock from 'I’m Always on My Mind' is a Harvard grad who’s so stuck on himself; he’s self-oriented. On the other hand the character Logan from 'Living with Rejection' is strong, focused, smart, and a little too compassionate and ends up paying for it in the long run. I’m drawn to anything creative that serves a greater purpose in the world and these plays, definitely serve a greater purpose; one being hilariously funny and the other being dramatic, but, together they are definitely raising the bar in the theatre realm and, we are certain, both shows will go onto becoming larger productions in the television, film or online markets. I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Lisa Bills and Leslie O’Hare on these incredible one-person shows''. ~ Linda Leonard
