A while back, D.J. From Monkeyman Productions asked me to direct a one-act play as a part of a double-bill of his plays entitled MONKEY SCI-FI HORROR THEATRE (which is appropriately typed in all caps. Only all caps. Ever). I said yes, and so I am directing Dead Manâ€™s Party, a play about Dungeons & Dragons and the Zombie Apocalypse. Which, you have to admit is pretty awesome. If a play about Dungeons & Dragons would be pretty cool, and a play about the Zombie apocalypse would be awesome cool, then a play combining both would be super awesome cool (what can I say, I gotta let my geek flag fly).
This last Wednesday, we had our first reading of the play and next week we will begin rehearsals in earnest. I quite like this play, and so Iâ€™m very much looking forward to having it as the first entry on my directing resume.
For those interested, MONKEY SCI-FI HORROR THEATRE runs May 22-23 and 29-30 at the Imperial Pub (54 Dundas Street East, not far from Yonge Street) with special LATE-NIGHT second performances on Saturday nights at 11pm!
In other news, on hoping to be appearing in a BYOV in the Fringe Fest this July. Details on that when they become available.
On the writing front, Iâ€™m working on a one-man play right now. This is going to be a long-haul kind of project, but Iâ€™m liking the process so far.
