Better Luck Next Time

After over a year of regular submissions, I got one of my short plays into Southern Rep’s 6×6 program.

6×6 is a new play slam that occurs several times throughout the year. New Orleans writers are given one week to write a short play on a selected theme (this month: “Better Luck Next Time”) and after a very brief (like, incredibly brief) period of rehearsal, six plays are performed in one evening.

My short play “He Hated It” is being directed by Jess Podewell, Southern Rep’s literary director, with performances by John Michael Haas, Joshua Smith, and Desiree Bacala.

There’s an astronaut who speaks in poetry and a farting monkey, so it’s probably not one you want to miss.

The performance will be Wednesday, March 30, 7 pm at The Theatre at St. Claude.
