I'm really excited to announce that a staged reading of my short play "Duckass" is part of the 47th Annual Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival, presented by Concord Theatricals! Directed by Dina Vovsi, it'll be performed alongside three other plays at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre (416 W 42nd St) on Wednesday, August 17th, at 8 p.m. Get your tickets here.
Here's a little synopsis:
Inspired by the horror shorts of EC Comics, "Duckass" focuses on two sisters who invite a local boy to their family's storm cellar.
This event feels extra-special to me for a few reasons:
– Due to the pandemic, it's the first in-person performance of my work in over two years.
– It's my first-ever reading in New York.
– I was part of the festival last year, but it was online, so it's a trip to be able to be in the same physical space as other theatre artists.
There are 30 different plays being presented throughout the week, and six of them will be selected by a panel of judges to be published by Concord Theatricals. Check out all of the other playwrights, as well as all of the festival info here. I cannot WAIT!
