JJ On Stage, LA and NYC Readings, Wicked Lit Selling Out

September 17, 2018

 

 

The lovely folks of Force of Nature Productions have invited me to participate in their new "In Their Shorts" series, my night will include readings of five of my short plays... plus me on stage.

Um, WHAAAAAT? I'll offering some insight as to the genesis and metamorphosis of each play and how they've shaped my life as a playwright, and also reading stage directions for all five pieces. And then apparently their is a gentle-roast element at the end... not totally sure about that bit. But should be a fun night in the theatre with wonderful friends, some great actors, and more than a few dramatic ups and downs.

 

Thursday, November 15 at 8:00 p.m.
