The latest in professional updates:
I'm still mostly sheltering in place in San Francisco. I go outside at least once a day. Here's how things were going for me last April, according to my newsletter
I've been working on a pretty cool adaptation of my play that I'll be able to more explicitly talk about very soon.
Here are some digital things I did from early Covid: I wrote a silly short play that you can download and perform at playathome.org (Thanks Berkeley Rep for the commission!). Also, I chatted with Bill English, AD of SF Playhouse about theater and stuff. I like my shirt, but could have had better posture. Watch it here!
And even earlier, I chatted with Lauren Gunderson and Octavio Solis in a video podcast for Playwrights Foundation. Watch it here.
I've been developing a new play called THE OVERBOOKED HOTEL ROOM. It's, um, it's about an overbooked hotel room and it has a lot of overlapping dialogue which makes it virtually impossible to do on Zoom.
I'm also working on a new play called TIM'S LAST WORDS. It's about grief and homosexuals and seafood.
Niko Tsakalakos and I wrote a musical about natural disasters and willful ignorance to human driven climate change. It's called . It had its World Premiere at FALL SPRINGS Barrington Stage Company in August 2019, directed by our longtime collaborator Stephen Brackett! Read my September Email 2019 update about how it went!
I was the Mellon Playwright in Residence at the Z Space from 2013-2018. It's all over for me now. But I talked to Artistic Director Lisa Steindler about it in this article. And I talked to Kirsten Greenidge about it in this article. You can read more about the whole residency thing here.
With HowlRound at Arts Emerson in Boston, I hosted a meeting about Comedy in American Theatre entitled I'M TIRED OF ALL THIS DRAMA. Read my recap here.
The fine folks at Dramatists Play Service have published my plays The Totalitarians, boom, BOB, Colorado, Hunter Gatherers, and T.I.C.
This is a nice old article about me in TCG's American Theatre Magazine.
I hand-coded this website over 10 years ago. That's why it looks like this.
