If you haven’t seen The Nexus Project yet—and if you’re content to watch Obama on every blog in the goddamned country tomorrow morning—tonight’s your night.

The Nexus Project is a bunch of short plays by (mostly) good Seattle-affiliated writers: Paul Mullin, Elizabeth Heffron, Mike Daisey, Scot Augustson, Marya Sea Kaminski, Waxie Moon, Stephanie Timm, and so on. (My review here.)

From director Mark Jared Zufelt:

tonight I wanted to make you aware of a very special talkback we’re having with NEXUS playwrights MIKE DASIEY (author of 21 DOG YEARS), PAUL MULLIN (2008 Stranger Genius Award-Winner) and SCOT AUGUSTSON (author of the delightfully adult Srgt Rigsby puppet shows). Admission is free, with the purchase of a ticket to NEXUS Program B, TONIGHT (7:30PM) at Richard Hugo House.

Normally, I’m against “talk-backs” always and everywhere (I can’t even write the word without scare quotes).

But Daisey, Mullin, and Augustson are three of the best talkers I’ve ever met. They’re all funny, gutsy, and fast on their feet. It doesn’t matter whether they’re talking about theater or Swedish meatballs—you should go.

(And it won’t be rebroadcast on every blog in the goddamned country tomorrow morning.)

Sorry, already made plans to see it tomorrow night.

I saw it. Some of it was yawn, but the rest was brilliant, esp. Marya Sea Kaminski, Mike Daisey and Waxie Moon's bits. Totally worth it, both acts.
