Duel Of The Linguist Mages

Annex Theatre produced my third full-length play, Duel Of The Linguist Mages, as part of its 24th season. The play is a dark new sci-fi comedy, about two researchers who learn to hack the very structure of language at a deeper level than ever before. Their discovery of “power morphemes” – tiny particles of meaning that mean much more than they should – turns out to be unexpectedly dangerous, and shockingly easy to weaponize. As the two researchers gain unprecedented linguistic power, they turn against each other in a struggle to control their new technology. A hapless computer programmer is unexpectedly caught in the crossfire – can he stop the spread of “power morphemes” before all of human civilization is brought to its knees? Who will survive the Duel Of The Linguist Mages? More »

DJ Christ Superstar

In 1999, I played Judas in a production called DJ Christ Superstar at Burning Man, directed by Mark Pesce. Let's just say I was smoking a crack pipe during the overture, in contrast to the Ecstasy-swilling band of apostles. As one observer commented, the show was "performed into the teeth of a sandstorm at the Burning Man festival - one of the most truly heroic performances I've ever seen." More »
