A Staged Reading of Lovecraftian Steampunk One-Act Comedy
Presented by John Weagly
A staged reading of a new play! Arkham, Massachusetts. The late-1800’s. The Age of Steam.
Over a three-day period of philandering secrets, a dire prophecy is foretold and comes to pass.
John Weagly’s work has been called “exuberant” – Chicago Tribune, “charming” – Chicago Reader and “appealingly quirky” – Chicago Sun-Times. Over 100 of his plays have received productions by theaters on 4 continents. A collection of his short sci-fi/fantasy scripts, Tiny Flights of Fantasy, has been taught at Columbia College. Also an award-winning short story writer, Locus Magazine once compared his short fiction to the works of Ray Bradbury and Nina Kiriki Hoffman and called him “a new writer worth reading and following.”
