Two of My Plays Appearing in Festivals In August

I've been largely neglecting this blog as of late since I have been reserving most of my musings on the arts on The Arts Fuse where I am theater critic and a senior contributor.

However, I have two announcements to make.

The first of which is that both my one-act play, Arlecchino Am Ravenous which some of you have seen me perform in diverse venues in the Boston metropolitan area as well as once in Providence, Rhode Island will be presented as part of Laugh/Riot Performing Arts Company's Rollercoaster, a festival that will run from August 21 to August 31 at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania where Laugh/Riot is the resident company.

The idea behind Rollercoaster is that the audience can select the evening's bill from any of twenty-five plays. Rob Connick will direct, and Kat Lawson will play Arlecchino. Tickets for Rollercoaster are available here.

The second announcement is that a short play of mine, Two Cats Explain the Monstrous Moth Group will be making its world premiere as part of The Changing Scene Theatre Northwest's Summerplay 2014: A Festival of New Works at the Tacoma Little Theatre in Tacoma, Washington from August 22 though August 30.

The play, inspired in part by two cats I used to live with back in the 1990s and as well as my lay person's understanding of supersymmetry, group theory and animal cognition, will be directed by Pavlina Morris.

Tickets for Summerplay 2014 are available here.
