I'm so happy, the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater facebook page published three photos of their first Yosemite preview.
There are still tickets available. Go to TicketCentral.com.
I read a wonderful interview with Daniel Talbott you can find here at Acceptance Project.
If you watched/will watch the play and want to write a review let me know. I would love to invite you for a guest post at my Lovely Kathryn Blog.
Yesterday I also found the audition call for Yosemite. Take a look:

Story of three young siblings who are sent out into the snow-silent woods in the Sierra Nevada foothills to dig a hole that will be deep enough to bury a family secret. As they dig, they search for a way to escape or be rescued from their lives, as the snow continues to fall and the world sinks in around them.
Seeking (all roles are available):
Female. Seeking actress 18+ to play mid - late teens. Ruby is calm and collected, understanding and grateful most of the time. A little naïve. Puts up with Jake and avoids confrontation. Does not like conflict. Wants to keep the family together.
Male. Seeking actor 18+ to play late teens - early 20s. Jake is Ruby's older brother. Curses a lot; bad temper. Means well and cares about Ruby, but comes across as an asshole. Fed up with the life they are living, and wants to escape. A dreamer; reminisces often. Resentful towards their mother for leaving them, and blames her for the death of his baby brother.
Male. Seeking actor 18+ to play 10-13. Jer is the youngest of the three. Alone so much that he has developed a wild imagination. Doesn't talk much. Still a child, and very naïve. Entertains himself with simple things, and isn't concerned with the fighting that goes on between his sister, brother and mother.
Woman, 30s-40s. Underweight. Beautiful. Mother of the three kids. Appears to have deserted them, and might be responsible for the death of their baby brother. Inappropriate and immature for a mother. Doesn't take responsibility for her actions. Lives in the past. Dead in the eyes most of the time, but much like a wounded animal can be fierce and dangerous when backed into a corner. A lost soul.
