Last summer, in the midst of the craziness and fun of our late night production of Crossroads (or The Piano of Death), I was told more than once that I should write a full-length play. So, that’s what I did. And I’m psyched to announce that The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth has decided to include that new full-length, Temptress, in their 22nd season.
It premieres on January 24, 2014. Here’s a tease of what’s in store.
Tracy Silver leads an idyllic life on Cape Cod with her two moms. She is about to be named valedictorian of her class and spends her weekends helping to run a community theater out of her family’s old barn. But she’s troubled by the message of their latest production, a play about their family’s history which only she seems to truly understand.
And then, her uncle shows up. He’s the closest thing she’s ever had to a father, but she’s learned something about him that she can’t unlearn. And now, now she’s going to use their stage and the magic at her disposal to put her uncle on trial for his crimes against femininity.
It’s going to be a blast. I’ll be casting the five women and one man I need soon and I’ll share news about those developments as soon as they develop.
