Back to the Stage in September

My short play "War is Coming" has been selected to be performed during what producer John Herman is calling An Evening of Steampunk and Robot Theatre. The show will run at the Players' Ring in Portsmouth, NH from September 24-October 10. It'll be the first time since a summer 2009 reading in Ernest Thompson's barn that my dramatic work has been performed. And, if you don't count that, it'll be the first time since March 1999, when my play The People vs. Jesus Christ took over Bradford College's Denworth Union for two nights.

Needless to say, I'm very excited.

In addition to having my play selected, I've also been selected as one of six directors who will help put the show together. And, in addition to that, a play I collaborated on with the ludicrously awesome Leslie Poston ("The Smokers") will be released on September 23 as part of anthology related to the theater project that'll include original music and visual art. John's put together something really special here, and I'm elated to be a part of it.

Check out the just-released poster to whet your appetite, and please do get ready to reserve your ticket to come and enjoy the experience. The show runs Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from September 24-October 10.
