Off to Alaska

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be participating in the Valdez Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska, where they will be reading my full-length play An Arctic Confederate Christmas. (They’ll also be featuring my short play Basic Cable Method Acting in their after-hours Valdez Fringe; I’ll be busy.) The conference runs from June 11-18; you can learn more about it here . If you’re somehow unable to get to Alaska on short notice, you can read both of these pieces (and a bunch of other stuff) at my NPX page, here.
