Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and piece by piece productions have announced that Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait, written and directed by Daniel Talbott, will begin performances Thursday, May 21 at 7pm at The Gym at Judson, 243 Thompson Street. The opening night is set for Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm. The production is scheduled to run through Saturday, June 27.

In a not so distant future where children have never known a world without war, resources are vanishing and what's left is controlled by minuscule factions. Soldiers still train and wait for battle, but there seem to be no enemies left to fight and no one, especially those in charge, seems to know who has won. American soldiers Smith and Leadem kill time at a worn out desert outpost swallowed by sand on the other side of the world. Dutifully fulfilling their mission, they wait for a sign from the enemy, for further orders, for anything. As their rations shrink and the desert, sky, and sand seem to grow and expand around them, they fight for clarity and sanity, to stay on task, and to serve as they've sworn to do. Is the enemy trying to kill them, or is it the country they've been fighting for that's the real darkness they're running from? As the days fall away it becomes less and less possible to know what is future, past, living, dead, or dream.

The cast of Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait is Kathryn Erbe ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," Ode to Joy), Brian Miskell (The Undeniable Sound of Right Now, Hill Town Plays), Seth Numrich ("Turn," Golden Boy, War Horse, Slipping), Chris Stack (Your Mother's Copy of the Kama Sutra, Hill Town Plays, "One Life to Live"), Jimi Stanton, and Jelena Stupljanin (Circus Columbia).

The set design for Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait is by Raul Abrego; costume design is by Tristan Raines; lighting design is by Joel Moritz; sound design is by John Zalewski; projection design is by Dave Tennent; violence and dance choreography by UnkleDave's Fight-House.

Kensho Update

Brad Raider wrote a new email to the Kensho at the Bedfellow supporters. I'm glad the movie is (more or less) done. I hope it will hit a festival close to me and you.

Dear Kensho Supporters,

After more than a year of post-production, I'm so pleased to report that the film is in its final stages as we prepare for our festival run and beyond.

We've been selected as one of only a handful of films worldwide to take part in the Conscious Film Convergence -- a two-day event May 29th and 30th during the Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona, Arizona.

While we won't be screening the film there, our team will be involved in panels, conversations and specifically, The Conscious Cinema Accelerator aimed at connecting filmmakers with financiers, marketers, distributors, and other industry professionals -- all of whom are committed to creating content that uplifts, enlivens, and inspires audiences. The Convergence is open to filmmakers and film fans, alike -- all are welcome.  Let me know if you'd like to go!

Our World Premiere is still in the works and I can't wait to share the news with you as soon as it's official.

In the meantime, checkout some new Film Grabs on our website and we'll continue to post on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as news comes in.

For our IndieGoGo supporters, thanks so much for your patience -- perks will be organized as soon as our final print is complete.  Online thank yous are here -- please let us know if we misspelled or omitted you.  Additional support for the film can be made here.  It's so appreciated and will supplement our efforts as we enter the home stretch.

Thank you again and more soon ... !
