Tonight we will hear about the upcoming play The Tower from special guests Maya Rook (Dramaturg) and Adam Scott Mazer (Playwright).
The Tower is a psychedelic journey into the history and mythology of the Donner Party, a group of snowbound pioneers who notoriously resorted to cannibalism to survive the brutal winter of 1846-47. Historical narrative collides with hallucinatory imagery to create a shifting landscape filled with the whispers of the past and the roar of the future. A vision of adolescent America: frostbitten, bloodstained, ravenous. Find out more at www.antimattercollective.org
722 Metropolitan Ave, 3rd floor
April 12-26, Wednesday through Sunday at 8pm.

'MY LIFE'S WORK'...From frostbitten toes to fingers-Chuck Brazelton.
Chuck, the youngest of four boys, all born at home in the family farm house near Brocton, IL.
Chuck attended a country school 2 miles from his home. The only way to get there was by WALKING. Cutting across several farms as a shortcut to get to school, my poor toes and fingers are finally thawing out.
Making CHOICES came early in my life. I had to make a decision/choice, move with my parents to a farm in Indiana or stay put. I chose to stay put and live with Elmer, my older brother and his wife. Elmer ran a filling station. Gas wars were popular back then. The lowest gas price was about 19 cents a gallon. Sure do miss the good old days.
After high school, I thought I was smart enough to...etc.
Worked in a plumbing & electrical business...etc.
Fate works in strange ways...etc.
I love airplanes...etc.
First job with Delta, dumping the 'honey bucket'...etc.
"My Life's Work"...frostbitten toes and fingers.
I've known Chuck for over 25 years. Remember earlier I said "Timing is Everything." GOOD NEWS, the time is NOW 2012 to hear Chuck's story of being the youngest of four boys, walking two miles to school, no gloves, no boots, hence the frozen toes and fingers.
Interesting journey and factual, Chuck remembers when gas was 19 cents a gallon.
Employment history, working for a cousin, plumbing and electrical, decided it wasn't for him. Chuck reconsidered College, after 3 years turned to his love of airplanes, his job, dumping "honey" buckets. Use your imagination, buckets DID NOT CONTAIN 'HONEY." This job was short lived. Some of my Choices came back to embrace me, others to bite me in the butt.
How I met my Soulmate...etc.
Jobless, now what...etc.
My exprience with Airfreight...etc.
Did I want to spend my life typing...etc.
Doors closed and the ONE opened...etc.
Epic Rites author, Mark Walton, joins us for a 2 hour poetry extravaganza. Mark, winner of the 2008 London Slam! Championship, will be reading the complete text of his modern masterpiece, Frostbitten. The phone lines will be open after the reading for Mark to answer questions.
It's Super Sunday and we are doing poetry, gay beyond words but we don't care. We really don't. And it's Jack birthday, almost. He's old and gray and some say gay but that's okay...
Mark Walton is rocking it as well: He has a new chapbook...
"There's an electricity and fire to Mark Walton's Frostbitten. Sad, heroic, astonishing in its clear voiced honesty, Walton's work alternates between post-Punk and neo-Modernism. A razor sharp edge to each line, Walton will astonish you and, ultimately, surprise you as his work draws you deep into a world most people are either unaware, or uncomfortable to visit. Mark Walton is sharp, clever and honest and his new work, Frostbitten, will be an important and interesting addition to anyone's collection of poetry."

Mark Walton is a poet and I think the first oral chappie cat to take a swing for the fence.
