Living in the Present Tense

Yes, it's true...I've been cheating on you, bloglovers. I've fallen madly in love with Charles Borkhuis' PRESENT TENSE, a great new play I'm directing May 23rd and 24th at The Brick Theater in Williamsburg. It's a clever and mind-stretching new play; it spreads wildly into a multiple-dimension, wormhole-stretching work about actors, audiences, and the infinite space between the two.

Here's a little blurb to entice you: "In PRESENT TENSE, two characters find themselves slipping in and out of parallel lives through 'wormholes' in the space-time of the play. One believes he has dozed off at home with a book on his lap and the play is a curiously lucid dream. The other is convinced that their performances in front of a live audience are desperately real. Panic starts to set in as the play's complications and reversals become increasingly fascinating and frightening."

C'mon, admit it...you're intrigued, aren't you? It's part of the Tiny Theatre Festival, co-produced by the Ontological-Hysteric and The Brick; there are six short plays in total, 90 nonstop minutes. Come enjoy!
