As seek to quench the fire of love with words.”

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.”

King Saul Pt 1: Casual Reading

This Sunday! We’ll be doing a casual reading of King Saul Part 1, my first “mature” verse play! It’s time to find out if I’ve grown at all as a writer over the last seven years!

‘KING SAUL PART I: An Elizabethan-style History play, The First Part of King Saul follows the biblical monarch from his ascension through war, to his fall into madness, and his ambivalent relationship with the legendary giant-slayer, David.’
