a brief return to self promotion

Not that my blog has ever fully left self promotional leanings, but holy goodness I have another play opening that needs some love spreadage. Here is my official spam:

Hello people of the land! It's Peter here. Thanks to everyone who came out and saw Hunter Gatherers this summer! Fall is now upon us, and I'm sure your throats are parched and raspy and in need for just a little more Nachtrieb before the cold really hits. Or before Indian summer hits (or was that early this year?).

Anyhoo, I invite you to check out my play, Colorado, opening THIS THURSDAY in Berkeley at the Impact Theater ( and running through the month of October! It is their second offering in their "Season of Sin" and my play includes Lust, Envy, Greed, Pride, Anger, and Gluttony. I'll get Sloth in there in a later play.

How Colorado is Similar/Different from Hunter Gatherers

1) It also has four people in it! In Colorado, however, they are all related.
2) Colorado is also a dark comedy. It's a bit darker. And maybe a bit sadder. Are you appreciating my truly intellectual breakdown of my work?
3) Less Death! But still, a little.
4) More humor about puberty than in Hunter Gatherers!
5) More monologues than in Hunter Gatherers!
6) Pizza and Beer readily available upstairs from the show!

Impact's well-written blurb:
On the surface Colorado is a wickedly funny dark comedy, but at its heart is an examination of celebrity worship within one family. Seventeen-year-old Tracey Ackhart is crowned Miss Late Teen Colorado and then mysteriously vanishes one day before the national pageant. Her jealous stage mother, her doting father, and her Maury Povich-obsessed little brother all have reasons to want her dead—if they weren't so dependent on her success for their own misguided dreams of happiness. A world premiere by a fast-rising local playwright who's also a member of the brilliant comedy troupe Killing My Lobster, Colorado is a sharp satire that aims for the gut—with too many pies to count.
