I know what you’re thinking: this guy actually does something outside of writing posts about lame music? It’s a fair question. Well, this month I intend to prove it with a fantastic new show.
It’s a one-act play called Postcards From A Dead Dog. I don’t want to give away too many details about it, but I’ll tell you that it’s a fantastic, funny story about a mother and her son, and their attempts to connect with each other throughout their complicated relationship. (That’s a really oversimplified plot summary, which is why I usually don’t give details.)
The important thing is that I’m working with an unbelievably gifted team: our director, Troy Miller, and actress Jackie Sydney, who is playing my mother. We’re all working as members of Emerging Artists Theatre Company. I’ve been a member of EAT for four years, and it’s been incredibly fulfilling, both creatively and personally.
Run by Artistic Director Paul Adams and an extremely talented staff, EAT is a company devoted to playwright development, and most shows performed have not been featured on a New York stage before. (See the website if you’re interested in more information.) Postcards From A Dead Dog is part of EAT’s biannual EATFEST, a collection of one-act plays performing in repertory.
If you’ve made it this far, thanks a lot; I appreciate it. If you’re anywhere in the NY area and are looking for a great night of theatre, featuring plays you definitely haven’t seen before, please consider spending 90 minutes with us. And please stick around after the show; I’d love to meet you if I haven’t already. It opens tomorrow, March 13!
