And some stuff I can't even talk about yet!
From Kaliyuga Arts website:
"Described by the playwright as a “comedy about euthanasia”, the play is a kind of 21st century spiritual heir to Peter Nichol’s legendary A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG in that, despite its heavy and sometimes shocking subject matter (this IS a Brad Fraser play, after all), it uses laughter as its weapon in dealing with very serious and complex issues.
Jake Sturdy is a well-meaning, responsible widower taking care of his severely disabled teen-aged son Joey with help from Twyla, his sister, Rowdy, Joey’s fetal alcohol syndrome-afflicted best friend, and Robyn, a married woman with whom he’s had a clandestine affair for years. But when Jake himself is suddenly stricken with a crippling condition, everything he wants for his family is put in jeopardy. KILL ME NOW is a funny, shattering, and heartbreaking story about caring for and ultimately having to say good-bye to those we love.
While KILL ME NOW touches on such hot button issues as euthanasia and the rights of the disabled, at its core it’s about the family ties we forge, whether they are biological or not. It’s about finding compassion in ourselves and in others when our physical and emotional limitations are stretched to the limits. And while the play takes us to some very dark places, it makes those harsh realities easier to swallow by making us laugh in the process."
My next project is playing Sandy in WHAT'S YOUR OPINION ON SPONTANEOUS HUMAN COMBUSTION?, part of the New York International Fringe Festival.
