So, apparently my one-act isn't funny. A friend of mine saw about ten minutes of it today and judged it based on that, saying it isn't funny. I think it's funny, although I do agree more could be done with it. He would have said it was funny if he had seen the part where they run across the bed. But I am actually starting to have a minor panic attack. It's too late in the game for me to be realizing now that there's a possibility that my comedy isn't funny. I'm starting to freak out a little bit. I'm in the process of going through the entire script and making notes about things that could be added or changed to make it bigger, funnier, more exaggerated. Maybe choosing a comedy was a bad idea... Or maybe I just need to realize that it's not necessarily the finish product that matters, although I do want to put forth a wonderful play. This class (Directing a One-Act Play) is about me learning and growing as a director. But I'm still scared.
