“The Ice Siren” returns.

“The Ice Siren”, my second collaboration with jazz saxophonist and composer John Ellis, will be reprised at The Jazz Gallery on February 19th and 20th. I’m excited to hear it again – some terrific performers, including John, and the amazing singers Miles Griffith and Gretchen Parlato. Here’s a link to excerpts from an earlier performance, in the old Jazz Gallery space on Hudson and Spring. (The new one, happily is more spacious!):

 

“Monster” – a brand new play, getting workshopped at New Dramatists

I’m in the midst of a two week workshop of “Monster”, at New Dramatists, as part of the Playtime Developmental Studio. I’m collaborating on the workshop with the director Portia Krieger. We’ll probably be doing a public showing next thursday the 19th at 3pm – check the New Dramatists site for further details next tuesday.   Here’s a brief description of this very new piece:

Monster”, very loosely inspired by “Beowulf” tells the story of Brenda, who, having had her daughter taken away by the state, comes back to small town she grew up in. The town, dominated now by a big box store, is unrecognizable to her. She gets a job at the store, which is infested with a monster, which is eating goods and employees. Brenda will take on the monster, and in doing so will have to reckon with her own monstrosity.
