INTRODUCING PLANET PHUCKETT!!

There I am!! Bushwick, you are too beautiful for words… A rewrite of an earlier play, PLANET PHUCKETT bears a lot of resemblance to my play PLANET HOSPICE. I had performed it several times in the past, and the world wasn’t ready for it. I also had to learn how to be present. The story […]
