We’re still here!

Not many posts recently, but we are still active! Our next play reading is scheduled for June 26th, so if you’ve been thinking about getting involved, now is a great time. A number of opportunities have come up for Shunya, and I hope we can make some interesting announcements soon.

On the website front, I’ve added in pictures for several of our early plays. If you have photos of our Satyagraha production, please drop me a line.

Beginning the customization process

I’ve uploaded 2 very basic headers to the site. I hope to further customize the look of the site in the next few weeks. In the meanwhile, I’ve corrected a bug in the slideshow function, so that should work for the productions for which I have uploaded photos. Next on the agenda: uploading photos for more of the productions, and adding links to our mailing list.
