My short play "Minimalistic Men" premiered at the Bruschetta Festival this past week. The Bruschetta Fest, hosted by Appetite Theatre, will continue performances every Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., November 10-19, at the Live Bait Theatre on Clark Street.

Other featured playwrights include Emmy Award winner James Brown, Nicholl scholar Arthur M. Jolly, Harrington recipient Justin Warner, and independent filmmaker James C. Ferguson.

"Minimalistic Men" will also be featured in a Best of the Ten Minute Plays showcase at the Donny's Skybox Theatre, located on the fourth floor of the Second City Chicago building (Piper's Alley). More information on that production as the opening weekend approaches.
