English professor Jake Shore has written a new play entitled SICK CITY BLUES that will be performed at the Connelly Theater in Manhattan this August. A tale of organized crime in New York City, his play examines the human tendency to put on different faces depending on whom one is talking to.
The opening performance is 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 9th, 2014, and will continue August 11, 14, 16, and 22. You can click on the hyperlinks to the notices in the New York Times and on the Fringe Theater website where you can purchase tickets.
Professor Shore is a graduate of Wagner College and completed his M.F.A. in creative writing at Goddard College. He teachers courses in literature and creative writing at Wagner. Originally from Rhode Island, Shore is also a musician and plays the guitar. Music is an essential part of his creative writing process. His previous play DOWN THE MOUNTAIN AND ACROSS THE STREAM won the Excellence in Playwriting Award at the New York City Fringe Festival in 2013 and was published by Indie Theater Now. You can also listen to a Indie Theater Now podcast interview with him and three other playwrights where he discusses his new play SICK CITY BLUES.
