The Killing of Michael X

website.michael.x(3M, 2W)
Somewhere in Middle America, teenagers Celia and Randy careen down a dark highway in a stolen Lexus. Cut to: Big Pharma, a disappearing brother, a femur unearthed in a backyard dig.  As the mysteries mount and the body count rises, Celia goes in search of her revenge, but she keeps getting closer to her own loss.  Every road trip movie ends with redemption, but will this one?

The play recieved its world premiere at Jackalope Theatre in March 2014.

Developed in the Bay Area Playwrights Festival (2010), Mondays @ 3 at NYTW (2011), and received a workshop production at the Brown/Trinity Playwrights Repertory (2011).

Reviews

"That rare piece of art ... A genre-evasive production that keeps the viewer off balance almost its entirety before ultimately delivering on all its potential."  

-- New City Chicago

"Brilliant ... Unforgettable ... Impressive ... Stylish ... I was blown away."

-- The Fourth Walsh
