Pinkie and Other Colors

As we gear up for our third and penultimate weekend for Colorful World, which I am getting happier with with each successive weekend, I wanted to once again remind folks that tonight at 7 p.m. at UNDER St. Marks, the first Drafthouse@Under St. Marks will be presenting a reading of my serial western noir play, Pinkie, as a full-length piece.

Having originally written it to be viewed in five installments as part of Vampire Cowboys’ Saturday Night Saloon series, yet at the same time created to work as one whole cohesive story, I’m very much looking forward to hearing how it sounds all together.

Did I mention it's real cheap (five bucks) and that drinks will be served?

Join me?

Head in the clouds,

For the first installment of The Drafthouse, Horse Trade's new reading series, they'll be presenting Pinkie by acclaimed playwright James Comtois. Told as a serialized old West potboiler, Pinkie follows the exploits of former Pinkerton detective "Dusty" Denton as he falls into a world of intrigue, danger, possum urine and desire.

PINKIE was originally developed in Vampire Cowboys Theatre Company's Saturday Night Saloon.

I just realized that you're not part of the cast. Who's playing Dusty?
