“Adios Assholes” Is a Play…

… that I wrote and am directing it in this year’s production of Unscreened! There are three other AWESOME (i.e. hilarious, poignant, amazing) plays in the night of one-acts at the Elephant Stages’ Lillian Theatre. Please show your support by donating to our production’s Kickstarter Fund or reserving your tickets now!

Wanna know more? Here’s the official skinny:

Unscreened is a lively evening of four world-premiere short plays by some of Hollywood’s fastest-rising writers and featuring a multi-star cast.

Black Sheep Entertainment and Firefly: Theater & Films created Unscreened to meet two goals: (i) to give brilliant and buzz-generating screen- and TV writers the chance to see their visions fully realized at a pace film and TV cannot accommodate but theater can; and (ii) to work with the well-known actors the writers and producers were meeting with in a way that was collaborative, quick, and equally fun for the creators and the audience. 

The newly announced 2012 class of writers includes Anna Christopher (Sloppy Firsts), Michelle Morgan (Middle of Nowhere, Imogene, and Variety’s “Top Ten Screenwriter’s to Watch”), Dahvi Waller (Mad Men, Eli Stone), and John Whittington (I Hope We Can Still be Friends, Untitled Cyrano de Bergerac Project for Gary Ross and Nina Jacobson). One year ago, the inaugural class of writers – including Emily Halpern, Leslye Headland, Beth Schacter, and Susanna Fogel & Joni Lefkowitz – began developing their short plays with Black Sheep and Firefly, and Unscreened went on to sell out its February and March 2011 eight-week run, with a cast featuring Sarah Agor, Julia Garro, Sprague Grayden, Will Greenberg, Steven Klein, Scott Kradolfer, Zosia Mamet, Michael Stahl-David, Rachael Taylor, Jesse Williams, and Shannon Woodward.

All four of last year’s short plays have gone on to become full projects, three of them with Unscreened cast attached – one has been adapted into a feature film now submitted for the Sundance Lab, one is being workshopped by Second Stage into a full- length play, one is being turned into a TV show concept, and the fourth is being produced as a short film.”
