The End Begins Tonight

18 Mar

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

by Dan Dietz, Jennifer Haley, Allison Moore, A. Rey Pamatmat, and Marco Ramirez

directed by Amy Attaway and Michael Legg

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!
