I’m excited for the staged reading of Infinity Mirror at Theatre Artists Studio in Phoenix (thestudiophx.org). It will be on Sunday May 7th at 7pm.
In this comedy/drama, Jesse, 25, is always trying to enlighten his family without success. After getting deathly ill while serving in the Peace Corp in West Africa, he confronts his mortality and becomes an immortalist, adopting an ultra-healthy lifestyle as a bridge to living forever. When he attempts to get his family to take this journey of super longevity with him, they react with their usual disinterest, distrust and stubbornness. But Jesse can’t let go. The more he pushes, the deeper they resist, until finally they explode, and he is forced to reckon with his own uniqueness.
We’ve got a strong cast doing the reading: Brenda Foley, Kevin Fenderson, Jason Hammond, Jason Issak, Barbara Acker and Bill Straus.
I’m looking forward to hearing the play read by someone other than me and in a place other than inside my own head!
