Good news, everyone! On Sunday afternoon, the inestimable women of Squeaky Bicycle Productions are producing a staged reading of my superexciting new one-act play, "Stella Starlight: Queen of Space." As a bonus, you will receive a helping of "Private School," a long one-act (or short full length?) by the supremely talented actor/playwright/Minneapolitan Dylan Lamb.
Dylan may insist that because his play is the longer, and comes second, it is the main event and mine is the opening act. But like most playwrights, he is a scruffy-faced lie machine, and should not be trusted.
I wrote "Stella Starlight" as a present to my then girlfriend, now wife, last year for her birthday. It's personal in a way that I often have trouble making my work (but am trying to get better at!), and also includes lasers and sword fights and all that good stuff. It's probably the best thing I've ever written, and if you miss it, your life is null and void.
The reading is at 3 pm, which will happily allow me to miss most of the Titans game. It's happening at:
260 W. 36th Street, 3rd floor
