A short play: Aftermath or Before the Parade Passes By

This play comes out of an exercise that I assigned to my students for our class this evening. In solidarity, I felt like I should attempt to tackle the same assignment: a 10-minute play based on a prompt. These characters come from another short play that I wrote about five years ago call "Another Kind of Opera Quiz," and they've continuously popped up in my head following the events of June 12, 2016. I finally heard their voices clearly enough last evening. This is what they had to say.

Thinking about the fringe...

So today I had the opportunity to be interviewed for a documentary film about the New York International Fringe Festival, also known as FringeNYC. The project is being spearheaded by filmmaker Frank Kuzler, who has been gathering footage and interviews from FringeNYC since 2006. As the festival is in its 20th year, the plan is to continue documenting this year's festival happening in August, and then the hope is for a release at some point in 2017.
