Had an amazing time down in Washington DC for the showcase reading of THE TOTALITARIANS, my Full Stage USA commission for NNPN via New Dramatists. Fellow NDer Ken Prestininzi directed, and was great to see the readings of other NDers Christina Anderson, Carson Kreitzer, and Carlos Murillo in the showcase as well. The 6PM fresh cookies at the Hampton Inn were also delicious.
