This July I will be directing an awesome one-act play written by the amazing Marilynn Barner Anselmi. The play is a part of the Secret Theatre's Long Island City One-Act Festival and is covered under the Actor's Equity Showcase code. We will be running with seven other short plays in the festival and it will be a night of great theater!! The show stars the amazing actors, Steven Strickland and Mark A. Keeton. Audience votes get a ground of the shows into the finals and I really hope to see you all out there in the audience to see this amazing play and these dope actors kill it, so we can compete. There will be several programs, however the finals will be the best of the best from all groups, not each group so we need those votes!
Synopsis: A city worker is tasked with cutting up a Confederate Statue--until it comes alive and begins to spout snippets of famous speeches in a bungled attempt to discover who it was.
I know you all watch me do soooo much. But this is really important to me and I'd really love your support, as this will be my first theatrical directing experience solo. I've co-written and co-directed four award-winning one-act plays between 2012 and 2014 with my former partner. We also did a full-length play in 2014 that was a part of the Venus/Adonis Festival. However, with this being my first solo venture and my first time directing an Equity production, the nerves are real. Thankfully the excitement is bigger than the fear, so in 2018 I am intentionally stepping out on my own fully, and your support is always appreciated!
The show dates are:
Saturday, July 14th 7:30pm
Friday, July 20th 9pm,
Thursday, July 26th 7pm
Sunday, July 29th and Wednesday, August 1st at 9pm.
