“Whit(e)man” yet again!

Today I learned that my absurdist social satire “Whit(e)man” is a semi-finalist in the TRU Voices Annual Play and Musical Reading Series!

TRU Voices New Play Series

Theater Resources Unlimited (or “TRU”) “was formed to promote a spirit of cooperation and support within the general theatre community by providing information and a variety of entertainment-related services and resources that strengthen the capacity of producing organizations, individuals producers, self-producing artists and other theater professionals.”

My play “Whit(e)man” was among the top ten scripts submitted to the contest. I’m very grateful to Theater Resources Unlimited for providing this great opportunity for playwrights and for shining light on new work.

Best of luck to the finalists this year!

“Whit(e)man” in Indiana

I have learned that my play “Whit(e)man” is going to be presented in the Dionysia New Play Competition sponsored by Khaos Theatre Company.


Khaos Company Theatre is  “a new professional regional theatre in the Indianapolis area aimed at providing professional experience to emerging artists.”

From the Khaos Company Theatre website:

“Up to twenty different five minute excerpts of full-length plays will be chosen and performed at the Competition. In a modern recreation of the Ancient Greek Playwright Festival, blindly cast actors perform excepts of new plays clad only in togas! Audience members cast their vote in their favorite excerpts to determine the winner. The winning play is performed in full in KCT’s 2018 Season! 
Every audience member will be provided one complimentary vote (Ostracon in ancient Greek) for their favorite play. Addition votes are one dollar with a limit of ten votes per night per person. The play with the most audience votes by the end of the production run will be declared the winner and will be performed in full during Khaos Company Theatre’s 2019 season.”

Thank you to Khaos Company Theatre for their inclusion of “Whit(e)man” in their new play festival!
