Winter LabFest Flashback

13 Jan

[Hi! I’m cheating! After being swamped all winter, I’m retroactively adding some items of note to my website. This is one of them.]

Some of you are probably thinking, “Wait… isn’t this play old? You’re having a reading of it now?”

Here’s the thing: I’ve given this old chestnut a complete overhaul, and rather than being a standalone piece, Picture 24 is now the first part of a much larger project. I’m not quite ready to talk about it in full, but suffice to say that this is pretty much a reading of an all new play. Less in a Star Wars: Special Edition way, more like a Marvel Ultimate line kind of thing. If you don’t speak nerd, just ask your nerd friends what that means. If you don’t have any nerd friends, why do you like my plays?

Picture 24

by A. Rey Pamatmat
directed by Kareem Fahmy

Joey meets Max, and it’s love at first sight… sort of. Joey meets Chuck, but love has nothing to do with it. While preparing an autobiographical photo series for a public showing, the romance and pornography in Joey’s private life start blurring together. Dot com parties, safe sex that’s hot sex, and dial-up Internet welcome you to a queer love story in the year 2000.

With Gideon Glick, Mark Junek, and Jon Norman Schneider
