Sometimes festivals put out calls for intimate, nuanced plays that paint artful stories that engage the mind and illuminate the human condition. And sometimes festivals just want pieces that are out-in-out zany-pants. Well, zany-pants, here we come! I'm excited to share that my short play Runed, which began its life as a spoof that I wrote for an Unbound fundraiser back n 2011, is going to receive its world premiere later this summer. The play is a riff on a riff of the M.R. James story "Casting the Runes" and follows the hijinx of four bumbling adventurers trying to avoid a terrifying curse.

Holmes, Sherlock, and The Consulting Detective has been licensed for its
second production - this one coming as a result of activity on the New Play Exchange. If you're a playwright and aren't registered with this service - look into it ASAP, it's a tremendous value and an unparalleled playwriting community. And if you're in the greater Seattle area and want to see 24 8th graders tackle this Sherlockian mash-up, let me know. ;-)
