PLAYHOUSE breaks up, for now, or for soon, into four parts:
Four excerpts from my full-length Play of Gilgamesh. This is an adaptation of the 4,000 year old epic poem in a style I call tribal storyteller's theatre. The four snippets on offer here are the short prologue, a larger chunk from just before intermission, and two chunks from the middle of the second half. The second of those is something of a stand-alone: it's called "The Pageant of the Flood," and it pre-dates the Noah tale by a thousand or two years.
Contact me if you wish to know more about this project.
a) A list of titles, and the longer projects they are part of.
b) One published short play, a comic dialogue called "Amusement Park." Please contact me before performing it, if it interests you.
c) One unpublished short play, "What If Everybody, What If Nobody," because it's incomplete without a collaborator who is a choreographer. It's less a traditional play than a folk tale for a Storyteller, a Listener, and two Dancers. Please contact me if it interests you!
Other short plays will be posted when the time is right.
I haven't reread this full-length script in almost 30 years. Watch this space.
Just for fun, I'll try to recall every part I've played in front of a paying audience. I will fail.
