Tom Bovo has a solo photography show, Genius Loci, at 440 Gallery (440 Sixth Avenue, near Ninth Street, Park Slope, Brooklyn). He commissioned me to write a play for it.
Genius Loci is photographs of leaves. After looking at the photographs, I decided that some of them reminded me of x-rays. So I have written a ten minute play about Wilhelm Roentgen, the discoverer of the x-ray. It's called "The Skull Beneath the Skin," and it's directed by Christie Marie Clark. Jacob Grigolia-Rosenbaum plays Roentgen, and Cotton Wright plays his long-suffering wife, Bertha. The costumes are by Meganne George.
Performances are Saturday, November 16 at the gallery at 4:40 and 6 PM. Admission is free. Wine and seltzer provided.
