Video: “57 Hours in the House of Culture” in Roanoke, Va.

Here’s the archival video from the premiere of “57 Hours in the House of Culture,” my full-length play about the Moscow theatre seige.

The play was produced at Studio Roanoke in Roanoke, Va., in May, and played to good reviews and good houses. We even had a visit from our local congressman, Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County.

The video is so long it’s broken into several parts, although the show ran without an intermission.

And here’s part three:

And here’s part four:

Congressman attends “57 Hours in the House of Culture”

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Dwayne Yancey, Maryellen Goodlatte outside Studio Roanoke. (That’s director Brian O’Sullivan in the background.)

We had nearly a full house for the first Friday night of “57 Hours in the House of Culture,” my show about the Moscow theatre siege now playing at Studio Roanoke.

Among those attending was Roanoke’s congressman — Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County — and his wife, Maryellen.

The Goodlattes are noted theatre-goers. About a year ago, they attended the Attic Productions youth show to see my one-act, “Curiosity Killed the Cat.”

The congressman said he took notes so he could do more research on the Moscow theatre siege.

“Curiosity Killed the Cat” at Attic Productions, Fincastle, Va.

Spoiler alert: Yes, Curiosity really did kill the cat.

Attic Productions, the community theatre in Botetourt County, Virginia, presents an annual youth show. In March 2011, it consisted of two one-acts, one of which was my detective comedy (and play on words) “Curiosity Killed the Cat.”

Of note: Our congressman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, heard about my work and came to see the show, along with his wife, Maryellen.

Here are some rehearsal photos from the show. You can find more here and here. Read the rest of this entry »
