Long time, no see...My original play The East, written with Craig Handel, premiered at Dean College in Franklin, MA this past October to rave reviews.  It has a strong chance of being performed at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in February, as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland next summer.  Fingers crossed!
In other news...My play CHOKE, which revolves around four men in a Mixed Martial Arts gym, will receive a staged reading with Counter-Production Theatre Company in Providence, RI on December 22nd.  
In the hopper...In discussions to create a new musical with old friend and musical genius, James Barry (Original Cast: Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson).  A couple of Mansfield, CT boys doing our part to spread challenging and truthful theatre.
