It's been a bit quiet around these parts, but I am happy to say I am back with some very exciting updates on upcoming projects! This coming summer and early fall, I will be setting up camp once again with my dear friends at The MuCCC over on Atlantic Avenue to bring to life two of my original works. The first venture will be in June, where I will be doing a workshop reading of my play 'Mammoth' which has been in on-and-off development for about two years now, having received its first round of workshopping almost exactly a year ago. I am very excited to bring the latest draft to a new audience as part of MuCCC-Fest, showcasing the work of MuCCC's frequent artists and collaborators.
After that it will be time to get fully underway with the third annual Rochester Fringe Festival happening this September across the city. Also taking place at MuCCC, I will be staging a full production of my new play, 'The Nameless Days of Gumdrop Smith' as part of the festival! The play is a romantic comedy that seeks to look at the ways in which we construct identity and sexuality in the modern age. Our story centers on a man called Diesel, who encounters and falls in love with a genderless, mysterious figure called Gumdrop. The secret to Gumdrop is that every year, he/she is given a completely new name by his/her parents, which in turn allows Gumdrop to don many ever-changing identities.
These will both be one-night-only affairs, so keep an eye out for dates! Thanks again for stopping by!
