Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving 2016

Like most of my friends I’m ready for this year to be over. But it’s probably good to take a minute and remind myself that there are still things for which I am truly thankful. I am thankful for my wife, Mandy. I am thankful for parents and siblings. I am thankful for my artistic families […]

Checking In

So much stuff has happened since my last post that I don’t know where to begin. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m friggin’ exhausted. The big news, of course, is the election. It’s been two weeks and I still don’t know what to say about it. I am enraged. I am depressed. I […]

Hammer Trinity Vice

If there’s anybody left who reads this, you might be wondering where I’ve been. The answer is Miami. I was there for seven weeks this spring, with the House Theatre of Chicago’s production of The Hammer Trinity. It’s the longest I’ve been away from Chicago since I moved here, and the longest I’ve been away from […]

Facelift!

The ol’ website’s gone and got herself a little work done. A little nipping and tucking, a little streamlining, a little smoothing out. I think it looks rather fancy, if I do say so myself. I hope you guys will give it a spin and let me know what you think. I’m deep into a long-overdue […]

Deathscribe 2015

On Monday my other company, WildClaw Theatre, capped off months of hard work with Deathscribe 2015. This year’s edition of the annual horror radio play festival was special as it was the first big event for what we’re dubbing WildClaw 3.0 – the company that assembled last summer after a handful of long-time members moved […]

Have I Told You About SINGLE VERSION Yet?

“The large cockroach skittering, scuttling across my desk doesn’t faze anyone. Except me. No one else even looks at it, I just catch it out of the corner of my eye. People got used to this far too quickly.” So begins Single Version, a new sci-fi novel by my friend and fellow WildClaw company member […]

Outlines (or, I’m Still Learning How to Write)

The four full-length plays I’ve had produced (with a fifth coming next fall!) are all adaptations. I confess, I enjoy the process of adaptation immensely. There is something immensely satisfying in that moment when I find that thing that will take the feeling I had reading the book and deliver it to an audience, watching a similar story on […]

I Was Totally Going to Call You

Um. Hey. I know. It’s been a while. Yeah, I said I was gonna be here more. I said it was gonna be like it was before, when things were good. And I haven’t kept my promise. I’m sorry. What have I been doing? Oh, you know. A little of this, a little of that. […]

Ear Infection

I have an ear infection. If anyone wants to know what I’m doing, and why I haven’t done anything productive, that is my simple answer. Ear infection. I cannot concentrate on anything else. My left ear canal is swollen and in pain. Advil helps, a little. So does flushing it with warm saline solution. For […]

Erin

I just spent the last half hour scrolling through my Facebook feed. It is filled with tributes to my friend Erin, who passed away yesterday after a mighty battle with cancer. It is not extraordinary that she lost. It was extraordinary the way she fought so hard for so long. Mandy and I saw her […]
