THE REVENANTS is closed, and my next project, already in rehearsal, is a piece in Tympanic Theatre’s upcoming production Today We Escape.
My contribution is a short play called WAVELENGTH, inspired by the song “Climbing Up the Walls.” WAVELENGTH is directed by Rebecca Willingham and stars Chris Acevedo and Libby Conkle.
A companion piece to Tympanic’s critically-acclaimed 2012 play festival, Deliver Us From Nowhere — itself drawn from Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska — Today We Escape pairs twelve Chicago playwrights with thirteen directors to create an evening of theatre inspired by Radiohead’s experimental album, OK Computer. Each writer used a song on the record as the springboard for a short play before an ensemble of musicians composes original music based on the plays themselves. Like Deliver Us….Today We Escape is a meditation on how art reflects art; a live album in the most unique sense of the word, and a celebration of music that is at times detached, yet strangely comforting.
