I will be interviewed by BlogTalkRadio's Nate Klarfeld on his show Stonewall Live!, on 95ecb9d7-3c1a-4197-b7cb-da530278341a_slive-3.jpgSunday, May 13th at 9PM EST, about my play A Letter From The Bishop which will have its New York City reading on June 11th at St Clement's Off-Broadway Theater. You can listen to the live broadcast here You can also call in to the show to speak with me at (805) 830-8355. I will be leaving a party early that night to do this interview, so if I sound suspiciously animated, the good news will be that I didn't fall into their pool with phone in hand.

A Letter From The Bishop is a play about the friendship shared by three gay priests and how they react to their homophobic bishop's demand that all his priests read a letter ordering Catholics to vote against same-sex marriage. One of the priests objects to the bishop's demand. This alters his friendship with the other two and leads to a confrontation with the bishop. The answer to the question "Will he or won't he read the anti-gay letter?" is revealed in the final scene. For more info about the play: click here for more information.
