Tonight is the night! After months of waiting and casting and rewriting, my full-length Tin Noses will be receive a sit-down reading as part of the Greenhouse Theater Center's Trellis Reading Series. The reading starts at 7 pm tonight, and I would love to see as many Chicagoans as possible there. There will be a bar available to all patrons and a short and sweet talkback after the play. Below is the play blurb and my list of totally awesome collaborators:
"When movie star Max is cast as a wounded World War I vet in an upcoming prestige pic, he must learn how to perform disability for the camera. Who better to help shape his physicality than ex-flame and hotshot choreographer Hannah? And her colleague Austin, who lost the role to Max, and who lives with a disability. Nope, this won't get awkward at all."
Directed by Scot West and assisted by Evelyn Gaynor.
MAX: Luke Daigle
HANNAH: Kat Evans
AUSTIN: Michael Carten
Come and rap with me about this script! It examines matters near and dear to my heart, including identity, visibility, perception, and how much I miss being in a rehearsal room on the regular.
