Ben Franklin as a werewolf

Magnus Buchan to Max Fischer: I always wanted to be in one of your fookin’ plays.

I’m in a play reading on Friday.  My friend, Nick, asked me to do it and I needed to say no because I have too much going on this week.  But I love his plays and his puppet shows so it was too hard to say no.  Furthermore, the part he wrote for me is Ben Franklin, who turns into a werewolf.  

 It’s 1763 and there are  vampires in Philadelphia.

Paula Abdul Blackwood is a beautiful young Quaker girl being forced into marriage with the wheelwright’s son.

Jack Sheridan, a politically idealistic young vampire, is the man she loves. 

Everywhere there is dissent.  Fractious parties debate the future of the colony.

MC Skat Kat and Benjamin Franklin vy for power in the Assembly.

______

This is a play about a play reading of a play about certain real historical events which could have actually happened, but didn’t.

It’s the story of a woman’s dream of writing a jukebox musical integrating the music of Paula Abdul with a vampire romance/history lesson.

The story of the birth of a nation, as seen through the eyes of Halloween.

We hope you’ll join us in entering the absolutely FREE world of . . .

    I went to this and it was spectacular. I was actually wondering if you knew of anything else – plays or whatever – that would be like this. If you could give me an email that’d be great.
