May means Mother’s Day, and Mother’s Day means the Boston Theater Marathon: ten solid hours of ten-minute plays, performed at the Boston Center for the Arts. That’s Sunday, May 8, from noon to 10:00 PM at the Boston Center for the Arts. Of course you should go, and take your Mom!
I’ve already written a post about the glories of the BTM, so this time I’ll be succinct: my brand-new play “Evolution” — never before performed — will be in this year’s Marathon, produced by Imaginary Beasts, directed by Matthew Woods, and featuring the acting talent of Joey Pelletier, Joy Campbell, and Noah Simes. The play features a group of creatures who have decided that it’s time to move up the evolutionary latter. But which direction should they go? Bigger, faster, or smarter?
There are plenty of other talented playwrights in the mix, including Stephen Faria, John J King, Ray Arsenault, Patrick Gabridge, Christopher Lockheardt, Ellen Davis Sutherland, Brandon Crose, Rick Park, and Ronan Noone. The complete schedule is here. You can show up for just an hour or two, or prove your stamina by watching the whole thing. (“Evolution” runs in the 8:00 – 9:00 slot, so you’ll want to plan accordingly.)
Tickets may be purchased here.
