IN KINGS AND FOOLS gets a Director!

I've been fortunate to be chosen to direct the staged reading of IN KINGS AND FOOLS, by Kevin Daly, a drama about a blue-collar New England family and their neighborhood, set just before the tragedy of 9/11. The play has a classic feel to it, reminiscent of Arthur Miller's ALL MY SONS…strong characters, and strong conflict.
The staged reading is part of Panndora Production's Panndora's Box Festival of New Works, now in it's 10th year, to be staged at The Garage Theatre in Long Beach, November 5th at 5pm.


In addition to directing this peice, I'll also be performing a role in another play at the festival, TRUE WILL by William Triplett. This production is scheduled for November 6th at 4pm.


Hope to see you there!

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
