Shotgun Hits Ignition Tonight

4 Aug

Ignition 2012 kicked off last night with a lovely reading from Martin Zimmerman, continues this afternoon with a play by new Ma-Yi Labbie Lauren Yee, and then finishes off its first week tonight with me! As previously mentioned, my theatre noir The Shotgun Message is part of Ignition 2012. Here are the details, please come out to Victory Gardens, bring friends, and spread the word!

The Shotgun Message

by A. Rey Pamatmat

directed by Henry Wishcamper

Journalist Kent MacDonald is no saint and certainly no savior. At least he never meant to be until 17-year-old Jared — the primary source of his article on teenage camwhores — winds up missing after turning in his pedophile clients to the FBI. In a lurid world of online sex, naïve parents, and kids who know too much, it’s up to Kent to find Jared, bring him home, and save both their souls in the process.

with Esteban Andres Cruz, Daniel Desmarais, Marc Grapey, Leah Karpel, and Jennifer Shin

Presented by Victory Gardens at The Biograph Theater, 2433 Lincoln Avenue, Saturday, August 4 @ 7:00 p.m.

For tickets and information on all the Ignition 2012 readings, click here.

Tickets are $5 and there’s a cash bar (with drinks allowed in the theater — thank god for civilization). We have a great team — both in terms of the company and (as always) the awesome Victory Gardens staff. So pop in, enjoy the work, and let us know how we’ve done!
