SEXING HITLER READING MAY 15
I'm happy to announce that the Unicorn Theatre will be doing a reading of Sexing Hitler as part of their In-Progress New Play Reading Series in partnership with the Midwest Dramatists Center. This KC Fringe Festival hit from 2012 has been expanded with about 30 minutes of new material.
Sexing Hitler tells the true story of how the Nazis invented inflatable pleasure dolls to protect troops from contracting syphilis in occupied countries. The play explores Heinrich Himmler's eugenics programs and the Third Reich's plans for global conquest.
The cast for the reading will be Brian Paulette, Amy Attaway, Logan Black, Laura Jacobs, and Andy Perkins. Ian R. Crawford is directing.
The reading is May 15 at 7:30pm at the Unicorn Theatre. Admission is free; donations accepted.
NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK
Fringe Plays is now available in paperback at Lulu, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble for only $12. You can also download it for free as a pdf or as an epub.
The five one-act plays in this book all premiered at the Kansas City Fringe Festival between 2008 and 2012, and each was awarded “Best of Fringe” the year it premiered. They now seek out new life at Fringe Festivals around the world.
In 1941, five people, led by writer and adventurer William Seabrook, gathered in a remote Maryland cabin to put a curse on Adolf Hitler and end World War II using witchcraft. This is the true story of what happened that night.
German soldiers in occupied territories are contracting syphilis from prostitutes in astounding numbers. The disease threatens the stability of the Third Reich. To solve the problem, Adolf Hitler orders the creation of inflatable pleasure dolls that the soldiers can carry in their packs to satisfy their urges. Yes, this is also a true story.
It begins as a steamy, sex-filled comedy, until one of the actresses curses the playwright and quits the play in the middle of a scene. What follows is a Pirandello-styled farce that deconstructs theatre and feminism.
Khaaaaan! the Musical
After Khan attacks the Enterprise crew in the 23rd century, Kirk, Spock and Bones go back in time to find the world locked in a perpetual 1980s culture lorded over by the guitar god Khan. This rock-n-roll parody of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan explores our nostalgic fixation on the past.
Jesus Christ, King of Comedy
Jesus goes into show business and becomes the biggest entertainer in the Middle East despite his rocky relationship with his non-biological father Joseph. The play uses the familiar tale of Christ to satirize our celebrity worshiping society.
I have uploaded pdfs of most of my stageplays and screenplays for everyone to read along with production information.
