The Clown Archive

This weekend (9/28–9/29) I performed my play A CLOWN, A HAMMER, A BOMB AND GOD at the Figment Festival in Washington DC. For those of you who don’t know, the play is based on the actions of one Father Carl Kabat. On Good Friday 1994 (which fell on April Fool’s day), Kabat dressed in a […]
