Support New Playwrights

Supporting new plays and playwrights is what keeps our art fresh and relevant. In that spirit I urge you to attend a reading of a new play that I've been told is quite good. Here's the scoop...

The Second Weekend in September
Tuesday, August 5, 2008 at 8:00 pm

What happens between David and Michael the second weekend in September has to be enough to last all year. In this absorbing new play, the “out and proud” David explores his identity over a twenty-five year period. During this time he shares a yearly clandestine meeting with Michael, a closeted married man, in a Seattle hotel room. A powerful look at the men's shared struggles, set against the backdrop of society's changing attitudes.

Playwright Andrew Black is the author of several full-length plays. Porn Yesterday (co-written with Patricia Milton) has been produced in San Diego, Phoenix, and New York. It's Murder Mary! (by Andrew and Patricia) was recently produced by the New Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. Watch out! This play will kill you! His other full-length plays are: Another Dude's Slingbacks and The Second Weekend in September . He has had short plays (about gay penguins and a secret affair between GI Joe and Ken) produced around the country. He is a member of the Dramatists' Guild and a board member of the Playwrights Center of San Francisco.
