SAT, APRIL 16 at 7:30, right after I finish working at The Mark Twain House & Museum, I will run across the West End of Hartford for the first reading of my newest play, BETTY JO'S FAN CLUB. This is an idea I have had for at least five years before I finally sat down to write it at the beginning of this year. I have always been obsessed by the idea of cults. I don't want to join one, but I would love to live near one and spy through the bushes. I started mulling over the idea of what would happen if an under-appreciated woman decided to start a fan club for herself by posting on a supermarket bulletin board. I didn't imagine at the time that my interest in cults would collide with this lady from Hamden, but it did. I think the play is twisted in the best ways and has ended up being an odd reflection on the Trump candidacy. I hope you will join me. There will be cake and a free will offering! Betty Jo no longer believes in free will, but encourages you to come see her. Her fan club needs new members.
