In November, I’ll be joining Starlight Radio Dreams as a guest performer, and you can bet I am (and will be) thankful for that. Since I was twelve, people have been telling me I have a face for radio, and it’s time to make that dream a reality!

You can also check out Starlight Radio Dreams’ next show Dream/Machine June 29th!

DREAM/MACHINE: One night of mandatory entertainment. The worlds of Clerk and Dagger and Starlight Radio Dreams come crashing together in this special collaboration featuring a host of new shorts. Its a show so good, you’re required to see it.”

Another disquieting romp through toxic masculinity, Two Gents tells the story of how a Love -Connection becomes a Love-Triangle, then a Love-Parallelogram, then a sort of Love-Gordian-Knot. Clever servants, clever lovers who impersonate clever servants, True Love and a bit with a dog! You’ll find yourself asking “Who is Sylvia?” before wondering aloud, “Who in their right mind would think these men should be allowed to act this way?”

Werewolf: Casual Reading

This Sunday! March 4 at 4pm, we’ll be meeting up to read through my newest contemporary script: Werewolf.

4001 N Ravenswood Ave, B3.

“Bodkin, Vraimont, and Shelley are concerned about the growing number of werewolf attacks in America, but their daily lives continuously distract them from doing anything about it. Bodkin is still looking for a job, Shelley feels imprisoned by the monotony of the rat race, and Vraimont is spiraling, unnoticed. Sadly, everyone else in the city seems equally distracted.”
