Wanted: director for new one-man show by critically acclaimed writer-performer of productions at the Edinburgh Fringe, United Solo Festival, One Man Standing Festival, and venues from Washington DC to Vermont. John Feffer’s latest play features Sherlock Holmes’s last case, the suicide of a famous Russian poet in Moscow in 1930. There’s no mystery who killed Vladimir Mayakovsky—but why did he do it? Hope I Die Before I Get Old combines video, music, dance, and puppetry in a multi-media exploration of artistic ambition, political revolution, and unrequited love.
We are planning rehearsals in late spring/early summer 2023 and performances in the Northampton area in summer or early fall, with remounts elsewhere in the Northeast in 2023 and 2024. Please send resume and cover letter to stage manager Nikki Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org. Script available upon request.
