I’m excited to announce that my short play “Grounding” will be featured in Ensemble Studio Theatre LA‘s LA Fest on Friday, December 8, 2017 at 8pm at Atwater Village Theater (3269 Casitas Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90039).
This play is an excerpted short from my full length play “Sweet, Sweet Revolution” which received a staged reading at Masquers Playhouse in Richmond, CA.
The piece will be directed by Heather Robinson and performed by Carin Chea and Kim Chueh.
I’m delighted to report that the 31 Plays in 31 Days Project that I co-founded with Rachel Bublitz and that I’m running this year with Topher Cusumano continues to be a success, helping writers all over the world push themselves to generate 31 new plays in the month of August.
To date, we have received well over 700 scripts for this month alone!
We’re about to wrap up for this year, but we’ll be back in August 2018, so save the month.
