Peregrine Sonata January 13th – 15th

I recently worked with Amanda Aikman on her new play Peregrine Sonata. The show opens in two weeks and here’s her press release about the play. It promises to be awesome. Hope to see you there!

This is an unabashed request to ask you to consider coming to see my play, “The Peregrine Sonata.”

It’s being produced by the Driftwood Players in Edmonds.

There are just four performances, January 13-15.

I know you’re busy.  So here are the top 6 reasons for you to call (425) 774-9600 now to reserve your tickets:

§  CHOSEN:  The play was selected to be Driftwood’s “Spotlight on a Local Playwright” production for 2012.  It has been developed in multiple rewrites and readings for a whole year.

§  LIMITED:  This is your only­ chance to see it.  No videos.  No repeats.

§  ELECTRIC:  Funny, dramatic, fast-moving, high-stakes.  The thrill of live performance.

§  TALENTED:  A great director, Doug Staley, and an energetic young cast.

§  GORGEOUS:  Film composer Mason Kaye has composed glorious music for the play.

§  INSPIRING:  A thoughtful theme that you may well find relevant to your life.

Please see for photos and a tiny bit more information.

Thanks so much.  I sure hope to see you at one of the performances!

Cheers, Amanda

New project – Peregrine Sonata

A new dramaturgy project has crossed my path titled Peregrine Sonata. I’ll be working with local playwright Amanda Aikman on her new play which will premiere at Wade James Theater with the Driftwood Players in Edmonds as part of their Spotlight a Local Playwright program. Here’s an excerpt from the site:

Five very different women struggle through their work, passions, and art to create a better world. Like most people, they wonder whether their efforts are in vain. Through glimpses of dramatic turning points in their lives, three interwoven plays show how a 19-year-old bike messenger, a middle-aged physician, two rival war correspondents, and a gifted young composer create far-reaching consequences of which they are completely unaware. Realistic and affirming, “Peregrine” is an eye-opener for all of us.

I’m very excited to work on the project which will open in mid-January.
