Who Are You Supposed To Be? A Doctor Who-themed play

After a popular season at the Edinburgh Fringe, my play about fans and fandom is premiering in London for three nights only in November: Nov 10, Nov 15, Nov 17. Tickets on sale at the Etcetera Theatre website.

Inspired by the "fake geek girl" meme and the ongoing discussion of whether there should be a female Doctor, WHO ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE is about the imperfect world we geeks have made for each other. [more inside]

And the priest took us into the sacristy and the job, of all things, was to dig a grave in the yard..."

It's almost Halloween! If you're in the NYC area, I'd like to invite you to "The Weir," a play of spooky tales from Ireland. Just $15 fro MeFite's (see "more inside" for details). "Conor McPherson's The Weir is easily one of the most celebrated new plays of the past 20 years ... Folding Chair Classical Theatre's remounting of this lovely and elegiac play is an excellent opportunity to catch a faithful rendition of this sometimes chilling, sometimes sentimental piece that appears to be entrenching itself into the modern Western Canon ... I was glad to see the script as well served as it was." -- nytheatre.com [more inside]

"The Weir" by Conor McPherson

Hi. I'd like to invite all New-york-based Mefites to see my play, "The Weir," by Conor McPherson. Oct 14th through Nov 6th. I directed it and Mefite Evangeline is acting in it. It's a great Halloween play, full of spooky stories. And it won the Olivier Award in 1999.

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]

Souvenirs of Home - a play at Summerworks

If you're in Toronto, you might be reading some press on the Summerworks Festival which is undergoing a bit of controversy due to their programming. (Enough kerfuffle to make a FPP, which I can't do, but you can!) In any case, I am performing in the Canadian premiere of a new play called Souvenirs of Home by Elyne Quan at the festival. Come, if you can. It's a lovely piece with a fresh point-of-view from a skilled writer. $10, various times. Here's the poster! Here's a preview piece! [more inside]
