One of my Plays is Currently Benefitting Animals in Arizona

My short play, The Race, is currently running in Prescott, Arizona, thanks to the good folks at The@trics Theatre.  As bonus, the event, Pet Plays, is a benefit to raise funds for the Yavapai Humane Society.

As someone who LOVES animals, this brings me great joy.

As the poster indicates, there are four performances, running from June 6th - 8th, all taking place at First Congregational Church.  I wish I could be there to see all these pets.

It also brings me great joy that this play, which steps inside of a dog's dreams, also honors two dear friends who I originally wrote the play for -- Ann Taylor and Timothy Verret -- over ten years ago while living in Austin, Texas.  I'm so happy that The Race lives on, and in such a purposeful way.

Big thank yous to The@trics Theatre and best of luck to them and to all the awesome animals receiving love from the Yavapai Humane Society.

much love,

Of Plastic Things and Butterfly Wings performs tonight in Victoria, British Columbia, thanks to the good folks at Kate Rubin Theatre and Drama Studio.

The studio's Youth Performance Company will present this Theater for Young Audiences work tonight, June 5th, 2013, at 8:00 pm at the Intrepid Theatre Club, and I enjoy thinking about this play (and its characters-- a Plastic Water Bottle, a Blue Crab, a Turtle, a Parrot, all the broken-down objects in The Gyres) being performed by young actors (which will be a first-- previous productions in Philadelphia and Phoenix were performed by adult actors).

This performance also marks the first time one of my plays has been produced in Canada, which is a really thrilling new threshold for me.  I'm so happy that my work is living outside of my own country.

This performance is also the first of my plays to ever be licensed through a publishing company, also  thrilling new territory for me, and for that I am grateful to the good folks at YouthPLAYS, Inc.

Big thank yous again to everyone who helped create this work, and to everyone who has made the continued sharing of this work possible.

much love,
