THE FUTURE WITHOUT YOU is an adaptation of six short sci-fi comics by Sophie Goldstein that I mounted in October 2019.
I did the sound and production design, in addition to acting and directing, and let me tell you, dear reader, it was a lot of work. I constructed a variety of brand new Foley props, designed a script format, and programmed around 700 slides.
The stories adapted were:
The Future is a Nice Place
Betsy (read at Sophie's website)
Mother Ship Blues (read at Sophie's website)
The cast consisted of myself, Javier Sagel, and Kara Bellavia. This show was produced in association with The Tulsa Artist Fellowship, the Tulsa City-County Library , and STAPLE! Independent Media Expo. There have been two public performances as of this writing, one at STAPLE! on 12 October 2019, the other in the Tulsa City-County Library's Central Branch's Pocahontas Greadington Room on 24 October 2019.
Video of the performance is forthcoming.
