Well, this is exciting …
After successful readings with the Vagabond Theatre Group in Massachusetts and Turn To Flesh Productions in New York City, my full-length comedy entitled King Arthur In Contemporary Connecticut is going to be produced for a limited, exclusive run in NYC at the end of October for four performances (10/29 & 10/30 at 7 PM and 10/31 & 11/1 at 2 PM) at The Bridge Theatre @ Shetler Studios (244 West 54th Street, 12th Floor New York, NY 10019.)
Produced in association with Dreamcatcher Entertainment’s Fulfill Your Dream program and directed by Patrick Marran, King Arthur In Contemporary Connecticut will be staged as a live audio drama (think: It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, The Thrilling Adventure Hour or The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show Live), using both pre-recorded sound effects and music as well as performing some sounds effects live in stage.
You can listen to a teaser trailer HERE.
Our wonderful cast includes Parker Madison [Arthur], Katie Weber [Gwen and other voices], Jack McKaene [Mordred and other voices], Jack McCahill [Lancelot and other voices], Art Brown [Merlin and other voices], and Lisa Flanagan [Tamora and other voices]

Inspired (loosely) by Mark Twain’s classic novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, King Arthur In Contemporary Connecticut reverses Twain’s original premise, following the exploits of King Arthur after he is unexpectedly transported to a small town in twentieth century Connecticut, where the once and future king struggles to adjust to his new future even as his past refuses to stay in the past.
