A bunch happening this weekend, if you’re looking for some theatre to see!
Coming up this Thursday and Friday, May 17-18, as well as Friday May 25, I will be involved with a lovely, strange, dark revue called Strangers and Strangerers: A Creepy Variety Show at Strawdog Theater’s Hugen Hall. The evening will feature a new short play of mine called TELL ME WHO YOU SEE, as well as a performance from Martin the Hunchback. Other horrific delights include radio plays by Clint Sheffer and Chris Hainsworth (the latter being directed by Casey!) with live foley, a creepy lullaby, and more! Created by Anna M. K. Brenner and hosted by Steve Herson, the show begins each night at 11:00, following performances of The Duchess of Malfi.
THEN, also this weekend, Edgewater Arts and Vintage Theatre Collective have put together this awesome weekend-long event in Edgewater/Andersonville called Fable Festival: Grim Tales and Music. With programming for kids and adults, the festival features theatre, music, puppetry, stroytelling, and more, all inspired by fables and fairy tales. I have a short piece being performed on Saturday night at 8pm as part of What Big Eyes You Have, an evening of theatre inspired by Little Red Riding Hood curated by the Goodman’s Tanya Palmer (that frankly I’m honored to be a part of because there are some heavy hitters on this roster!); my piece in the evening will be directed by Brad Akin. Check out their full schedule on their website, fablefestival.org.
And CLOSING THIS SUNDAY is Deliver Us From Nowhere, Tympanic Theatre’s show over at the Right Brain Project, which includes my short play, THE STRAY.
I hear they’re selling out so if you want some creepy Springsteen theatre, get on that!
Theatre! Theatre everywhere!
