Word up: There will be a staged read of my new play, The Bishop’s Eighteen Wives, at the Hillbarn in Foster City on March 29, 2005 at 7:30 p.m. The director is Ann Kuchins and she’s damned good — she was nominated for a Bay Area Critics Circle award in 2001 for her work on Three Tall Women.
Playing the queen ice bitch princess, Irmgard II von Diepholz, will be the glorious and immaculate Alex Alexander. Alex played Lizzie against my Starbuck in The Rainmaker last year. Ann directed us both, and Alex and I ended up winning Favorite Actor and Actress for 2004 at the ‘Barn.
I’m telling you flat out. You need to cancel your other nonexistent plans and get your ass to the Hillbarn on March 29.
Tickets are $10 cheap at the door, phone number (650) 349-6411. You need hear this play before it breaks into the big leagues.
Update! Several other rockstars have signed up for the show, including the inspired Marin Carpenter as Marlena, the gorgeous Valerie Allen as Sophie, and the talented Sean Williford as The Evil Bishop Franz von Waldeck. Noel Wood will be rocking the part of Jan van Leyden. w00t!
