Tonight: “How to Build a Dictator” – Black Box Experiments

I’m very pleased to have my script “How to Build a Dictator” be part of penangpac’s Black Box Experiments Series for 2016. It’s a unique, audience participation piece which I can’t tell you much about because it’s meant to be experienced, not talked about. It’s not even meant to watched on video. Someone asked if they could record it, and after thinking a few minutes, I said ‘no’ because it wouldn’t be the same.

I can tell you that it is kind of like a political rally. There will be music. There will be food. There will be crazy antics and testimonials.

It’s directed by the wild and crazy Ysabel Loh, award winning young actor in her own right. She’s done a FABULOUS job with the piece as I knew she would.

Oh, and I’m actually on stage acting in this one. Strange, I know. But she wanted me to play a role and I agreed. It’s been a lot of fun so far.

I’ll be posting photos of the event later. It’s going to be a crazy night.
