Sweet Redemption: Apple Pie in the Last Act

I have a beautiful, embarrassing confession to make. When I was 13, I single-handedly ruined my school’s production of Charlotte’s Web. Chances are you’ve secretly helped me atone for it, and I wanted to say thanks by sharing this survival story (and some advice to help you win that five pound apple pie when you attend the new Sherlock Holmes murder mystery dinner). Improvising and interacting with you on the farm has given me lots of unique little chances to atone for that rough show all those years ago, and to learn about improvisation as survival. The show must go on!
