As you probably know, Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them isn’t my only contribution to this year’s Humana Festival of New American Plays. I also worked with Dan Dietz, Jennifer Haley, Allison Moore, and Marco Ramirez to create an anthology play for the theatre’s 2010 – 11 Acting Apprentice Company. Our theme: the Apocalypse. The result: The End.
My part is a skit called This is How It Ends, which is a little bit Book of Revelations, a little bit Gregg Araki-inspired sexy punkishness, a little bit existential crisis, and a whole lot of fun. The other writers have contributed amazing pieces that run the gamut from beautifully-crafted personal dramas to meta-zombie flicks, from mystical beings awakened and angry to nuclear prom night shenanigans. Come along for the ride!
The play opens tonight, March 18 at 11:00 PM, in the Bingham Theatre. Click here for tickets and show those apprentices some love — they deserve it!

The end is near! Or at least, it always seems like it’s near. From forewarning to four horsemen, five wildly imaginative playwrights join forces with our twenty-two acting apprentices to explore the enduring promise of apocalypse — and what lies on the other side.
And, since I was the only one in town before opening, the press department did another little interview with me about The End. Enjoy!
