ONE LAST BRUNCH at EST's Youngblood Brunch | Sunday June 2th at 1pm
From Charly: The time has come for Youngblood to cast off its 30 year old members. As luck would have it, I turned 30 in March and so I am going to be sent out into the real world to be a real, live adult playwright. Before that happens though, I will be doing ONE LAST BRUNCH about how I ended up writing plays in NYC. Directed by Colette Robert with Ngozi Anyanwu & Risa Sarachan.
SCRATCHING THE SURFACE at EST | Wednesday June 15th at 9pm
Directed by Matt Dickson with Cristina Pitter, Eddie Boroevich, Lilli Stein and Sasha Diamond.
From Charly: After my last brunch, I will be having my last Youngblood Bloodworks Reading of my play, Scratching the Surface. It is a darker play of mine so come on out if you like that sort of thing...and come on out if you begrudgingly will deal with it because you want to hear my new play. Directed by Matt Dickson with Cristina Pitter, Eddie Boroevich, Lilli Stein and Sasha Diamond.
I DIDN'T TELL YOU THAT at JACK | Monday June 20th at 8pm
From Charly: My last thing of the month is a solo piece I've written and am performing at the Decent Company's June Show. This month's theme is secrets. I'm talking about my struggles with anxiety and depression with the lovely direction of Illana Stein. It is a very personal show for me and it would be lovely to see some friendly faces in the audience.
