Pete Wilson Dies

Pete Wilson, long time KGO anchorman and KGO radio host died last Friday during surgery for a hip replacement. I listened to Pete almost every day on KGO and he happened to be a neighbor of my parents. It's a very sad day for those who knew him in person or through the radio. Pete was the type of host who never hid himself from his audience. You always knew what mood he was in, if he was happy or bothered or angry or depressed. He made you feel like a friend and I think that's why so many people feel so saddened by his passing. I also know that he used to act in musical theatre when he was younger. Anyway, if you would like to express your thoughts and feelings about Pete, you can do that here.

We've all heard it a thousand times, but try to live each day as if it were your last. You just never know what will happen.

About the International Festival

365 Days/ 365 Plays - The play cycle by Suzan-Lori Parks
On November 13, 2002, SUZAN-LORI PARKS got an idea to write a play a day for a year. She began that very day, finishing one year later. The resulting play cycle, called 365 Days/365Plays, is a daily meditation on an artistic life. Some plays are very short, less than a page. Others last forever.
SUZAN-LORI PARKS is a playwright, screenwriter and novelist whose plays include Topdog / Underdog, Fucking A, Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom, The America Play, Venus, The Death Of The Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World, and In The Blood, among others. In 2002, she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Topdog / Underdog.

The 365 International Festival invites any theater in the world to join a grassroots premiere of this play cycle. Over 700 theaters are producing the plays in Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Colorado, Greater Texas, Los Angeles, Midwest, New York, Northeast, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Southeast, Washington DC Area, West, Universities (365U) and all over the planet through 365Global. Produced by Bonnie Metzgar and Suzan-Lori Parks, the 365 Festival is being performed from November 13, 2006 through November 12, 2007.
Plays can be produced in traditional theater spaces or site-specific locations, opera halls or ice rinks. They can be staged readings or fully produced. Participating theaters will each present seven plays, representing one week of this play cycle, before then passing the cycle on to the next theater in a cultural relay race that celebrates the community of theater artists and audiences wherever they are found - online and around the world.
All performances are free to the public and all artists can participate. As we like to say at 365, there's pie for everyone. So whether you are an audience member or an artist, we invite you to join 365.
