New Mural at the Drake…with my name on it!

The Drake Theatre, festooned by a flashy, new mural.

So, while I was plunking away at my novel, something interesting happened over the summer; I had my name and a quote from one of my plays plastered on the side of a building.

Okay, sure, so did 39 other local playwrights, but that doesn’t make my statement less true.  The Drake Theater (located on Spruce Street, between 15th and 16th) got duckied-up with a new mural, which incorporates quotes from 40 local playwrights.  I’ve been squawking about the Drake for some time, and I’m proud to have a line from one of my plays splattered across it.

What line?  Glad you asked.  It’s from The Do’s and Don’ts of Time Travel and goes like this:

“Everything is set in stone.  But there are an infinite number of stones.”

Deep, right?  Or maybe simply pretentious.  It’s hard for a line to land when you take it out of context.  Anyway, it makes sense when you read the play.

So, if you’re in the neighborhood, check out the mural, find my quote, and maybe read some of the others.  Nothing’s more fun than reading lines out of context!

An extreme closeup of my name, just to prove I’m not lying.
