My latest full-length play, The First Annual Bookburners Convention, opened last night at Space55 theatre in downtown Phoenix! It’s a play that’s inspired by my time working in used bookstores around the Valley; It’s also inspired by John Keel’s The Mothman Prophecies, Twilight Zone reruns, Richard Linklater movies, the music of Sandy Denny, Lovecraft, and Borges. It runs from Sept. 7-30 (Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm). If you’re in the Valley (as a resident or visitor) and you’re looking to spend a mind-altering, hilarious, and spooky night at the theater, come down to 18th Ave & McDowell and check it out.
