So, a kickass, new announcement: my play, The Do’s and Don’ts of Time Travel is receiving its west-coast premiere in January 2019!
I know, right! I’ve known about this for some time, but I promised Quantum Dragon Theatre I wouldn’t say anything until they issued their press release, which they did three days ago. Here’s their announcement page, and if you scroll to the bottom, you’ll find the link to the press release.
For those of you keeping score, this is the third production of The Do’s and Don’ts of Time Travel, the first being in Philly in 2008 (Straw Flower Productions), and the second being in Indianapolis in 2009 (Phoenix Theatre). If you care, you can access production photos, cast lists, and reviews on the DDTT page on this site. This production will finally complete the classic, American, Philadelphia-Indianapolis-San Francisco theatrical trifecta, and I couldn’t be happier.
Side-note: while going through the original program for the Philly production of DDTT, I realized that the original production is now celebrating its tenth anniversary. Seriously. October 2008. Exactly ten years ago, we were in the middle of our run. I mean, it’s cool and all, but also mildly unsettling, and…appropriate, maybe? Not sure. Certainly queer.
So if anyone is in the San Francisco area in January, you should check out my show. And if you’re in the SF area any other time, you should check out Quantum Dragon, anyway. They’re one of the few theaters in the world, dedicated to science-fiction/fantasy plays. Hopefully, I can look forward to a long future, working with them (cross your fingers).
In unrelated news, I’m attending the Push to Publish Conference tomorrow. I haven’t been there in a few years (though I did have fun in 2015), mostly because I wasn’t finished my latest novel, and I abandoned selling my last one. But now with The Lost City of the Metal Men ready to go, I feel pumped and ready to shamelessly peddle that bastard. So, if you’re going to be at the conference, look me up, and maybe we can go out for drinks, after. I’ll be the guy in the blue jacket.
