I write plays.
Matchbox Reading Series
My play MARK SMITH will be featured in Crowded Fire Theater’s Matchbox Reading Series on Tuesday March 13th here in SF. I look forward to diving into this piece again after working on it with 13P in NYC many moons ago (2006). Check out the other plays in the series, too… Readings are at Muse Gallery, 614 Alabama Street. Schedule: http://www.crowdedfire.dreamhosters.com/2012/02/in-the-matchbox/
TCG Conference in June
I’m a speaker at the 2011 TCG National Conference which will be held in L.A. June 16-18. The theme is, “What if…” and I’m on a panel called “What if… Artists Do it Themselves?” Rob Handel (Managing Director of 13P) and I will be talking about our experiences with 13P and the panel also includes artists from Workhaus (based in Minneapolis) and DogEar (based in L.A.).

Little Theatre Vol. X No. 9 Benefit for ‘Pataphysics
Lynne McCullough will perform a song from DOT called No Fault of My Own. Original music is by Mike Iveson (pictured here rehearsing with Lynne), lyrics by me.
Other artists in the line-up include: Scott Adkins, Erin Courtney, Erik Ehn, Rebecca Hart, Jeffrey M. Jones, Normandy Sherwood, Anne Washburn, Gary Winter, Mac Wellman & Valerie Work !!
Join us for an evening of cocktails, prizes and theater! ‘Pataphysics seeks your support as we raise funds to help offset the cost of the Erik Ehn silent retreat for playwrights, to be held this summer.
Now in its second year, ‘Pataphysics’ retreat in the Catskills for playwrights is pleased to offer two opportunities—one of which happens to be our longest and most extensive retreat. It also happens to be the most expensive. Your support will help make the retreat affordable for participating writers by covering some of the costs of room and board at the two offsite workshops.
6:30 pm $30 for pre-show cocktails, a chance to buy raffle tickets AND a ticket to Little Theatre
8:00 pm $15 for Little Theatre Only
