The new year is busy, busy, busy already! It's so nice to be working. I have three shows up in January, and one in February, and I hope that you'll check them out if you are in the vicinity!

The Gun Show/Trenton: Jan. 24 - Feb. 8 at Passage Theatre
I'm getting ready to spend a month on the east coast, where the Passage Theatre at the Mill Hill Playhouse production of The Gun Show in Trenton is going to be taking the stage. Directed by Damon Bonetti. Featuring Trent Blanton. Damon directed the world premiere of my play True Story at Passage in 2012, and I'm delighted to be working with him again, and with everyone at the playhouse! passagetheatre.org

Infinite Black Suitcase/St. Louis Park High School: Jan. 16-18
If you're in Minnesota, you can check out the St. Louis Park High School production of Infinite Black Suitcase. This is a high school production. Support kids making theater!
|Heads by EM Lewis will be playing at Theater for the New City |
in NYC from February 2-14.
Heads/Theater for a New City in NYC: Feb. 2 - 14
My play Heads -- a hostage drama set during the early years of the Iraq War, winner of the Primus Prize from the American Theater Critics Association -- is going up in New York City. Tickets will be available soon, so stay tuned for more information!
I'm packing my parka for NJ/NY -- and hope to see some of you when I'm out there, which will be from January 14 through February 9 or 10. I'll be down in Trenton for the most part, with my production of The Gun Show, but will definitely try to take the train into New York City for a few days as well, and maybe down to Philly and DC for a couple days, too. After New Jersey, I'm going to be in Chicago (or thereabouts) for a little writing retreat for a week or so. And then I go to Ellensburg, Washington for a few days, to be a playwriting respondent for the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival, Region 7, and teach a playwriting workshop entitled "Writing Our Own History." Back home to Oregon again after all that, I think! Until the next thing comes along...
Happy new year, everybody!
