Part of the Piccolo Spoleto Stelle Di Domani series. Winner of the 2008 KC/ACTF Region IV David L. Shelton Award and written by CofC student, Michael Smallwood, this play is a compelling and contemporary exploration of the complexity of genius. It’s the story of Josh Kramer and his struggle to harness and tame his creativity. This production contains adult language. (2 hrs.)
WHAT IS IT? The story of a young writer working against his own unmanageable creativity and a literary agent’s deadline to finish a nascent fantasy trilogy — with some sword fighting and dance numbers for good measure.
WHY SEE IT? The playwright, Michael Smallwood, is a senior at CofC and has already won national awards, including one for this play. When he makes it big in the New York indie theater circuit, you’ll be able to say you’ve known his work for years.
WHO SHOULD GO? Struggling writers, Lord of the Rings fans, and theater lovers hoping to discover the next big talent. (Elizabeth Pandolfi)
