NOW IT’S OFFICIAL
I wrote a play. The show is called Thumbs Up! and this July I’m traveling to Washington, D.C. to present the world premiere at the Capital Fringe Festival. It’s a one-person show and I’m the cast. This production is presented as a part of the 2012 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe. Now it’s official.
Thumbs Up! is about a young man whose father dies unexpectedly. In his Dad’s will the son learns that his father’s final request sends him hitchhiking across America with a bonsai tree. On the road you’ll meet characters.
