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!
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!
Rising will be produced at the Wilbur Wright Theatre in Munster, Indiana in November. All author proceeds from this production will be going to Bahamanian relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Rising will also be at the Summit Christian Academy in Broken Arrow, OK on November 21st. All author proceeds from this production will be going to Bahamanian relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Dorian.
A new, funny, silly short play How Not to Do Your Homework is coming soon from YouthPLAYS, Inc.
