This is probably a good time and place to discuss some recent and upcoming projects:
Also recently, I took part in the Playwrights Commons Freedom Arts Retreat, which was an incredible experience and something very much deserving of its own post (which may happen in the very near future). Essentially it was eleven theatre artists in a big house in the woods in New Hampshire collaborating on new works. I hope and believe that many of the pieces started there will evolve into complete and polished works that take on a life of their own.
In recent scholarly news, I completed a review of Eugenio Barba's latest book, Directing and Dramaturgy: Burning Down the House, for the next issue of New England Theatre Journal, which should be coming out some time in early 2012.
In playwriting news, my documentary drama, Bystander 9/11: A Theatre Piece Concerning the Events of September 11, 2001 is scheduled for performances in a couple different venues next month, and was also recently released in a Kindle edition. After the Hill has also been done at several schools around the country recently, and work on The Marquis De Sade's Justine continues to happen. My co-librettist Silvia Graziano and I are in the process of seeking a composer. For those who have been following the project, we had a public reading of it at BPT this past Valentine's Day (of course) and we're continuing to develop the piece further. And also in the realm of opera (sort of), my One-Minute Non-Musical LA BOHEME was performed in North Yorkshire in the UK this summer as part of the Gi60 festival. This summer I've also been taking part in the Playwrights Commons/Company One Playwrights Playground development project. The two pieces I've been working on there (and on my own of course) are called Buring Up The Dictionary and Legacy. (Both of those are working titles.)
There's been a lot of fight directing work this summer across a pretty wide spectrum of companies and genres. I just started work on Tom Stoppard's Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth with Whistler in the Dark, one of my favorite of the small companies in Boston. It's a script with some really interesting challenges.
There has also been directing, acting (on camera no less), teaching, more research, and all manner of other stuff going on.
