We made the finals!

I had a great time at the semi-finals of the Secret Theatre One-Act Festival on Saturday, and the good news is, my play My Fellow Americans made it into the finals!

Rebecca Ana Peña does a superb job in the show, playing the President of the United States making an important speech as pressing issues intervene. The play's director, Rachael Langton, also came out to see it on Saturday, and we were able to take a photo together outside the theatre.

Thanks to all those who came out to support the show during its run and for the semi-finals. If you haven't seen it yet, you have one more chance! The play will be performed TONIGHT, Sunday, August 14th, at the Secret Theatre's new location in Woodside: 38-02 61st Street, Queens, NY 11377.

In addition to seeing our show, you'll be able to see the other plays that advanced to the finals, including The Gatekeepers by Dan Perry, Starry Starry Night by Brian Leahy Doyle, My Piano Doesn't Like Me by Larry Rinkel, and Happier Days by Jennifer Ju. Curtain time is 7:30pm, and you can get tickets here.

There will be an afterparty at the theatre, and they plan to announce the winners of the festival at 10pm. The audience will be asked to vote on Best Play, Best Director, and two Best Actor Awards. Hope you can make it!
