The Geeks Come Out at Night

The theatre geeks, of course.

This week, Violet Surprise Theatre (g)hosts an active variety show and an interactive play reading.

First up, on Thursday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m. Central, is SapphFest: All Boo'd Up, a showcase of etherial material by creepy comediennes, potent poets, diabolical dancers, prestidigitating playwrights, and sinister singers.

Our performers aren't just eerie.

They're queerie.

And they're going to scare the dickens chickens out of you...

...thereby paving the gay for you to have an egg-ceptionally enjoyable experience at our interactive play reading of a sparkling Sapphic satire on Friday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m. Central.

Don't be afraid to die laughing, or you won't be able to R.I.P.

Revel in Performing.

A Place in the Sunday Lineup

When Opehlia's Jump Productions notified me that my submission had been selected for inclusion in their WORD Play Festival, I was jumping for joy.

Upon receipt of this message from the director, who professed her adoration for my play from the jump, I was a veritable visitor to a bounce house:

So, your play! I have to say that is a personal favorite selection of mine, and I was obsessed with it as soon as I finished the first page. A queer piece that married sapphic sensibilities with the bulletfire wit of a Rosalind Russell-esque comedic dialogue spoke to me on a personal level. I just, I'm a big fan, and I also want to thank you so much for writing what you have. It's joyous and delightful.

And now, since my play is featured in the final day of the festival, I am jumping to conclusions.

Please jump at the opportunity to reserve your ticket.

Then we'll come back to earth.

Consider it a promised

Bring Your Own Boos

The spectral sort, specifically.

FYI, BYOT (a.k.a. Bring Your Own Theatre) Productions is back for another 24-hour theatre festival, and this time I'm participating as a playwright.

In the spirit of Halloween, the October show will come back to haunt you -- courtesy of comebacks to haunt you and other ethereal material.

I prefer -- no, I prefear -- that you tune in tonight at 8:00 PM CDT.

Be there or beware.

But don't worry -- the show shan't scare you stiff or straight.

A Clutch Sought After Script

When it comes to theatre, women have always brought something to the table, be it dining, turning, or vanity.

My contribution is a one-act play in the "vain" of Sharing My Voice Does Not Equal Vanity, which will be featured in Clutch Productions' empowHER Reading Series this weekend.

The play follows a mother and daughters who begin by occupying the bottom of the ladder and end by climbing to the tops of their voices.

Having a voice in the development of the script was certainly tops. It made the writing process exceedingly exceptional -- and the play exceptionally exquisite.

In other words, being in Clutch's clutches was the epitome of a captivating experience.

Want to be comparably captivated? 

Then reserve your seat at the un-vanity table for Saturday, October 3, at 7:00 PM EST or Sunday, October 4, at 3:00 PM EST.

Once seated, you'll be treated to a bill of fare that isn't square -- in any play, shape, or norm.

Mine, in fact, explores sexual liberation, so you'll want to catch this release.

Now that's what I call coming in Clutch.

B4-um and Afternoon

The Golden Girls aren't the only Floridians who are anything but quotidian.

The same can be said of Gainesville's Florida Players, who will be presenting one of my 10-minunte Sapphic stage stories in their Playwriting Forum this afternoon at 3:00 PM EST.

But the piece won't be at the "tale" end.

It'll be at the beginning.

Now that's what I call starting out!
