South Carolina in April

This past weekend I was in beautiful, blooming South Carolina for a few fun events. I was able to see the stage version of BRICK, based on the original film written and directed by Rian Johnson, at J.L. Mann High School in Greenville. It was adapted by my buddy Chris White, a phenomenal actor / teacher / director / writer / collaborator, and I heard that Rian's response to the piece was equal in excitement to mine. Well done, Chris!

I was also able to hear a reading of a new play of mine that's still in development. It's about Zombies, and I'm working with some of my favorite all-time partners at Trustus Theatre in Columbia. This project has been simmering for a while, and will come to full boil with a guest artist / residency planned for later this summer in at The Studios of Key West, in Key West, Florida. We're taking the script through a development process down there, and hope to put on some readings / staged performances of it, and see what we've got. I'll post more about this opportunity later - this is just the sneak preview!
