Amazing news - my new play about the mysterious disappearance of Agatha Christie in 1926 will be the official Early Draft Preview at Houston's prestigious Alley Theatre as part of their New Play Festival. I'll be at the Alley Theatre on Sunday, January 26th, 2020, to read an excerpt and talk about the play... after having been carefully instructed to avoid one or two critical spoilers. I can't wait!

Alley Theatre: All New Festival

Other news...

I just got back from the Alley at Ucross Residency, where I was working on a new draft of my Agatha Christie play alongside Tony Award nominee Robert Askins, Vichet Chum, Claire Kiechel, Molly Beach Murphy - along with Rob Melrose, the AD of the Alley, and Liz Frankel, their Director of New Work. It was an amazing experience, and I long to get back there again.

The College of Charleston, SC production of The Lady Demands Satisfaction was fantastic - so good that there may be more news to come about that production... my fingers are crossed!

Where We Disappear Trailer and another Festival!

Where We Disappear, the movie based on A Gulag Mouse has a new trailer and several upcoming festival appearances - the latest was at the Heartland Film Festival.
