Upcoming Events at Prime Stage Theatre:
Mystery, Monsters, and More …

September 23rd, 2020

This site has been quiet for a while.

Things have been busy, what with dodging the microscopic shrapnel of World War C. Through it all, I’ve been doing my best to learn from the examples set by writers who lived through past epidemics – Sherwood Anderson, Beatrix Potter, and W.E.B. Du Bois (all of whom wrote during the 1918 flu outbreak); and Francesco Petrarca, Thomas Nash, and William Shakespeare (who penned some of their greatest works during Europe’s deadliest plagues).

Clearly, staying at home can have positive side effects for a writer.

So … although it may not be evident from this website (where I haven’t posted since April), I’ve nevertheless been working.

One project, begun shortly after The Wicket Library released  “The Other Kind” back in February, is a new audio drama for Prime Stage Mystery Theatre titled “A Knavish Piece of Mystery.” The program will be a five-part who-done-it, with Prime Stage releasing a new episode each Thursday in October at primestage.com.

“Knavish” is just one of the virtual programs that Prime Online will be offering this fall. Together, these shows will fill the gap left by the live performances that have been moved to 2021-22. Among those plays is my newly completed adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, now set to premiere next fall.

So … while we’re waiting for the good doctor to shout, “It’s alive!” we’ll have plenty of virtual content to keep us entertained. And, since the five episodes of “Knavish” will be interactive, we’ll get to solve that story’s mystery together.

Click the audio player below to hear more about Prime Stage Mystery Theatre’s “A Knavish Piece of Mystery.” I’ll meet you there.
