One Bear Lake Premieres in Six Days

oblpicMy first premiere happens in six days. My play, One Bear Lake, opens in Charleston at 5th Wall Productions on January 20 and runs every weekend until the last performance on February 4. I’ll be in town for the opening weekend, and I hope to see you there. One Bear Lake is about sibling rivalry taken to the nth degree. Three siblings gather with their spouses for a week long retreat and soon discover that growing up in the same family doesn’t mean they had the same childhoods.  Jealousy, anger, love, and humor are the ties that bind.

And, while I call it “my” play, that is no longer true. It now belongs to the extremely talented cast and crew of 5th Wall Productions, and they are as follows:

Emma Scott – Lily

Jason Olsen – Paul

Freddy – Jamie Young

Rachel – Margaret Nyland

Tom – Greg Tompkins

Gayle – Sarah Daniel

Director – Blair Cadden

Come one. Come all. Buy your tickets early. 5th Wall Productions’ One Bear Lake

 

One Bear Lake – How to Beat the Inauguration Blues

one-bear-lake-poster-edit2-1Let’s face it, January 20 is not a date most people are looking forward to. I don’t care if you support or hate the man who will be the 45th POTUS. The country is going to be shrouded in a blanket of anxiety thanks to an enormous political and social divide.Things are going to be tense for a long, long time to come.

What you need to do is learn how to laugh in the face of the dark days ahead, and what better way to do that than to watch a two-act comedy about carrot cake and cancer. My play, One Bear Lake, happens to open on… January 20 at 5th Wall Productions in West Ashley (Charleston, SC). I’m flying in for opening night and Saturday night’s performances.  The cast is stellar. The director is superb. The writing is… Well, it would be in poor taste to tell you how fantastic the writing is since I wrote the play.

Bottom line? Come. Laugh. Enjoy.
