Of Fools and Kings - UPDATE

Derek Long is an award-winning, bi-coastal actor, producer, and director based in Asheville, NC, who enjoys practicing his art in whatever corner of the globe it takes him. His work can be seen online, on DVD, VOD, cable, and in-person on the stage. Enjoy and come back often for the latest news on Derek Long and his upcoming attractions.

The staged reading I directed in November has been chosen as the winner of Pannndora's Box Festival of New Plays! That means that this Spring, I will get a chance to mount a complete production of this great play for a wider audience. Yes, this time there will be real props, designed stage, costumes, and everything!

The plan is to pull the production together immediately and debut the play at The Garage Theater this May. And, it looks like I'll be blessed to have the same bunch of talented actors reprising their roles. They were a dream to work with and have a great mastery of Kevin Daley's vivid characters. 

I'll also have the incredible support of Panndora Productions producers Sonya Breggren and Karen Wrey. They are a talented group and artists in their own right, so I know we're in the best hands possible.

As of now, look for this play to open for a preview on May 11, with performances on May 12,13,19,20,21,26,27,and 28.

More information is coming, so check back here soon!

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.
