Sometimes the barn springs forth some interesting surprises. Late Wednesday night (Thursday morning), as we were cleaning up for the night, I spotted something round in the dirt in the middle of the barn. I dusted it off and picked it up to discover it was a gold dollar coin.  But this is no ordinary dollar coin (which, lets face it, just aren't that ordinary to begin with). I knew exactly why it was in the middle of the dirt floor, who put it there, and how long it had been there.

Some of you may remember when we produced Picked, by Stephanie Timm, three years ago.  One of the props was a bag of gold coins, and a loose one, which were hidden under a stump. Over the course of the run, we managed to misplace a few of them.  So lo and behold, I had uncovered one of the missing coins, three years later.  It was a fun find. One of the many things that makes theatre in an outdoor (or "outdoor") space unique. Buried treasure.
