What I’m working on now
Never go into DARKTOWN after DUSK.
DON’t pick up LO-TEK’S.
Never, ever get out of the cab.
In a bleak dystopian future what was just another night for a cynical, washed out cabbie takes an unexpected turn when he breaks his own rules to help a young girl in trouble.
“I watched the deformed, crimson glow of the impotent sun, slide, reluctantly from view, like the last desperate encore of some Hollywood has-been. Behind it, that great icon of hope, reduced to a crumbling metaphor for all the broken dreams it had ferried into the arms of the city beyond. I pressed the glass of the bottle against my lips and drank deeply. Letting the sweet, stinging elixir do its work. Another hour, another few fares to take me back across town to my cube, then I’d call it a night. It would be dark soon. The curtain of night already starting to close around the city as if to hide from view the sins of its inhabitants, sins that always followed the night, like a stray dog begging for scraps.”
You can’t be a playwright without believing there’s an audience for adventurous work.

The creations of a great writer are little more than the moods and passions of his own heart, given surnames and Christian names, and sent to walk the earth.

An actor without a playwright is like a hole without a doughnut.
