  • Chicago Friends and Friends With Chicago Connections

    And by “connections” I mean theatre connections and/or friends who like theatre.

    Here it is, my big push to invite people to the developmental production of Heart Shaped Nebula. My play goes up in Chicago this September at Halcyon Theatre at part of their 2013 Alcyone Festival.

    Heart Nebula, yes there actually is one.

    What’s the play about?

    Glad you asked. Here’s the synopsis:

    Set on the anniversary of a tragic accident, a motel room outside Las Vegas becomes the nexus of memory, reincarnation, love, and the nature of the universe. And for 34-year old Miqueo and 13-year old Amara, nothing is quite what it seems.

    That’s the official synopsis. Unofficially I’ll say Heart Shaped Nebula is a love story on many levels. Not just a love story between two characters, but my own. So many things I love are in this play: Astronomy, Greek myths, science, an obscure reference to NikolaTesla, an obscure reference to an 80s Sizzlean commercial, nostalgia for my home state of Texas and a love poem.

    When is it?

    The festival schedule is up and Heart Shaped Nebula performances are:

    Friday, September 6 at 8pm.
    Sunday, September 8 at 6 p.m.
    Friday, September 13 at 8 p.m.
    Saturday, September 21 at 8 p.m.

    How can you attend?

    Tickets can be purchased online.

    Hope you can make it!
