Upcoming Readings and Productions

I’m excited to announce four or five upcoming readings and productions still to come in 2012 (it’s been a great year)!

I will have two one-minute plays in the One Minute Play Festival, “The Bereaved” and “Flash Cards,” curated by Dominic D’Andrea and hosted by the Bay Area Playwrights Foundation. I found a structure I liked and built two super-short playlets using it. We’ll see how it works. The festival takes place December 15-16 at Thick House in San Francisco.

My ten-minute comedy, “A Crank-it-Up Christmas,” will premiere in the 3Girls Theatre’s Holiday Showcase, playing for Thursday through Sunday for two weekends beginning December 6, at the Phoenix Theatre in San Francisco. The play explores the angst created by Alabama’s continuing ban on the sale of sex toys.

“In the Silence of Tangerine Groves,” a 45-minute one-act, will be read at the San Francisco Olympians Festival one night only, December 13. It’s a play about a perfume executive who loses her nose but eventually comes to her senses with the help of the goddess Demeter. Tickets ($10) available only at the door, at the Exit Theatre, San Francisco.

Finally, the new musical Caroline Altman and I are working on will receive a private reading December 1 at at Central Works Writing Workshop.
