Well, the huge news is that I have been invited by the Alley Theatre to participate in the Alley at Ucross Residency, alongside Tony Award nominee Robert Askins, Vichet Chum, Claire Kiechel, Molly Beach Murphy - and Rob Melrose, the AD of the Alley, and Liz Frankel, their Director of New Work. I can't wait!

Before that even happens, I'll be heading back to Charleston, SC, for The Lady Demands Satisfaction. It should be a fun production - set back a week by a disruptive hurricane with no respect for rehearsal schedules; but I'm thankful the city was spared the devastation wrought in the Bahamas. Incidentally, the proceeds from the next production of Rising (see below) will be going to relief efforts for those affected by Dorian.

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 - next is the Heartland Film Festival, with two screenings, October 13th and 17th.
