New projects: Slip and WRECKED

I’ve been asked to write a few episodes of the next season of WRECKED, a Seattle-based webseries created by Honey Toad Studios. Their first season is available to watch here. The series is a sex-positive romp through mid-twenty existence in Seattle and is highly entertaining for its frank conversations about sex and generous application of lube. I’m honored they’ve asked me to write. I’ll be locking myself away with the director and creator, Liz Ellis, this weekend to discuss arc and story. Production begins in late February (I believe) and features many talented Seattle faces including Ricky Coates and Jessica Martin. Check it out. And then check out season two when you can see my name splash across the screen.

Secondly, my play “Slip” (working title) has been chosen as the workshop production of Macha Monkey Productions next season. Over the next year I’ll have public readings, and workshops, leading up to its premiere in either the Fall of 2013 or the early Winter of 2014. Here’s a brief excerpt:

ALANA
Shouldn’t you be taller?

UNCLE HAL
Should I? How’s that?

ALANA
And balding?

UNCLE HAL
God, I hope not. Better?

ALANA
With a beer belly.

UNCLE HAL
Yes, this is incredibly attractive.

ALANA
Sorry. No beer belly.

UNCLE HAL
Can I have some of my hair back?

ALANA
Yes. A little.

UNCLE HAL
How’s that?

ALANA
Better. You look like someone Aunt Lucille would have loved.

UNCLE HAL
And you? You loved me very much.

ALANA
Yes. You look like my favorite uncle.

UNCLE HAL
Your only

ALANA
But favorite.

UNCLE HAL
Now what do I do?

ALANA
I don’t know.

UNCLE HAL
Should I

ALANA
I’m not sure what to do with you.

UNCLE HAL
Oh. I see.

ALANA
Go sit over there. I’ll figure it out later.

UNCLE HAL
Gonna try to find where I fit.

ALANA
Exactly. Now go over there and stop bothering me.

UNCLE HAL
So bossy in your old age.

ALANA
I’m not bossy.

UNCLE HAL
When you were little, well, now look at you. You’re a Viking.

ALANA
Amazon.

UNCLE HAL
No. I think Viking. You’re a conqueror.

The first public reading will likely be some time in January or February, and I couldn’t be happier that Macha Monkey presented this opportunity to me.
