This week, thanks to Justin Blanchard and Brooklyn Shakes, I’m workshopping a brand new play, “Don’t You Fucking Say a Word”, inspired by a heated moment I had on the tennis court a couple of years ago. I love this photo of McEnroe – his petulance in it, his frustration. In his tennis tantrums he did seem to turn into a two year old. Not pretty, and not right, but understandable!
The play is explored from the perspective of the men’s girlfriends. We have a terrific cast: Justin, Crystal Finn, David Ross and Molly Ward. Erik Pearson is directing. There’s a reading next Monday the 18th at 7pm in Williamsburg. Visit Brooklyn Shakes for more info!
Black Label, a podcast written for one of my favorite actors: James Urbaniak, for his monthly podcast Getting on With James Urbaniak. He brings on a different writer every month to write a version of him. Listen to this podcast, if you will (or rather can), at 3am, in the dark, on your grandmother’s transistor radio.
Just out with Samuel French, a terrifically funny dark comedy I co-translated with San Francisco-based Kyoko Yoshida. All of my other Japanese co-translations are with a different Kyoko Yoshida, who lives in Yokohama! Get your copies here!
