Lower East Side Festival of the Arts

I’m delighted to announce that my short play Basic Cable Method Acting, which was recently seen at the Queens Theatre Festival, is receiving an encore performance at the Lower East Side Festival of the Arts! The performance is scheduled for 8:56pm (give or take) on Friday, May 26, at the downstairs Cabaret Theatre at the Theater for the New City. Tickets for the festival are free; you can find more information about the festival here. (Note that the full line-up doesn’t mention my name – it mentions my friend Darpan Joshi, who’s the director of this production and a long-time collaborator at TftNC – but you guys know who wrote the play, I trust!)
