I've written a short play for the amazing 52nd Street Project here in NYC, which will be performed in August as part of their annual "One-on-Ones", where adult actors partner with 9- and 10-year-old kids from the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood to perform plays that were written for them. It's one of the many terrific programs they do at the Project to empower local young people.
The girl I'm writing for has a very quirky sense of humor; the play she wrote for their fall program is surreal and amazing. I tried to honor that spirit by having her play a genius mathematician-slash-jazz trumpeter who travels through space and time, facing such terrors as killer drones, velociraptor scientists, and even... smooth jazz. I'm looking forward to seeing her perform it!
