I'm excited to announce that How To Kill An Elephant has been renamed *some humans were harmed in the making of this show. The name change was brought about after struggling with how best to explain the piece in grant applications and marketing materials. While I was attending the NYFA "Artist As Entrepreneur" Boot Camp, I decided to take this struggle to the other participants. Karen Faris, a poet from Rochester, explained to me that the element that wasn't working for her in the original title was the lack of humor. The show description and photos had a twisted sense of humor and I needed a title that matched. So I threw out a few other ideas to my mini advisory committee during the last day breakout session and this one elicited chuckles. I then tested it on other people I had met during the course of the four days and got the same reaction. It's a bit of a mouth full but it better sums up the style of this show and I hope it is humorously provocative.
The second bit of great news is that a full workshop production is taking place in Austin, Texas with En Route Productions in June 2018. Exact dates and times to be announced soon. Sign up for my mailing list for updates.
