This week, a play of mine is opening in New York. It’s a decidedly minor work: a one-act play by a fledgling playwright in a small, black-box theater. That said, I’m proud of it. It’s funny and powerful and it focus on some subjects that are deeply important to me: racism, violence, and nostalgia.
If you’re in the New York area and would like to see it, “Ice Cream Man” will be at Manhattan Repertory Theatre at 9:00 pm on Wednesday, April 8 and Thursday, April 9. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know which night you’d like to come. If you can’t make it but want to support a minor work in progress, you can donate by going to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ice-cream-man–3/x/10085203. Donate in the next 24 hours and you’ll get your own personalized, minor poem: $10 for an acrostic, $25 for a haiku, $50 for a limerick, and $75 for a Shakespearean sonnet. How great an offer is that?
