reading of Flight in New York on Monday
On Monday, February 27th, I'll have a reading of my newest full-length play, Flight, from the id theater in New York, as part of their Sit In! reading series. We'll be at Jimmy's No. 43 Downstairs at 43 E. 7th Street, at 6:30 pm. (The reading is free, though there's a one-drink minimum.)
Jessica Bauman will be directing a stellar cast that includes Gilbert Cruz, Anna Kull, Brenny Rabine, and Trevor Vaughn.
Here's a brief summary of Flight:
Sarah spends her days in the airport, finding comfort in its organized chaos, forced anonymity, and careful security. Little does she know that beneath its clean and shining façade, the airport - like the world outside it - is littered with lives torn apart by loss. Caught in the crossfire of the airport's lost souls, Sarah discovers there is no such thing as an innocent escape.
I've been developing this script for a while, with readings from the Madcap Players in DC, Rhombus in Boston, and input from the Huntington Theatre Company's Playwriting Fellows Program, and folks at the 2011 Seven Devils Conference (run by id theater). I'm very excited to see how this latest version of the script plays out.
If you're around, I hope you'll check it out. (Seating is very limited, so you might want to e-mail me if you plan to attend.)
