It is with gratitude that I share that my play, The Alternate Possibilities of Our Past and Future History with Particular Regard to the Eastern Puma and the Corps of Discovery is a finalist for the First Flight Festival, produced by Boomerang Theatre Company!
I'm super excited to be a part of the Night of Extraordinary Risk with Pipeline — a brand new program that is a part of their mission-driven work to make challenging theatre, and that joins that mission with me and the PlayLab, their playwright residency program. For the inaugural year of the program, the Class of 2018 selected the classic Indian folk tale, “Vikram and Betal.” The tale features a prideful king, a dubious sorcerer, a back-latching ghoul, innumerable daughters, and absolutely no sons. Join the PlayLab class of 2018 for a grand experiment in playmaking; a night of riddles, mystery, and, as always, a touch of magic. This new event will be presented November 16-18 in a tucked away space at 915 Broadway.
Tickets on sale here.
