Mrs. Hawking, the new steampunk play series by Boston-area writer Phoebe Roberts, takes a bold new approach to the classic genre of the Victorian mystery caper. Begin with a Sherlock Holmes of sorts, a deductive genius following the threads of wrongdoing as concealed by the careful manners of a straitlaced culture. Blend into this the psychological complexity of a brooding, Batman-esque avenger, driven by old wounds and a fierce indignation over society’s injustice. And to complete the image, give it a twist– make her a woman, her endeavors cloaked by a mask of harmless respectability, when in reality she is a defiant, Steampunk-style shattering of the delicate Victorian mold. Join Mary as she enters the world of Mrs. Victoria Hawking, and see for yourself what a compelling combination this makes!
I will once again be helping backstage as the third play in the series, Base Instruments, and the fourth, Gilded Cages, run at Arisia 2018.

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
by Jay Presson Allen
adapted from the book by Muriel Sparks
Produced by Theatre To Go, Inc., by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Jean Brodie is a teacher at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, Scotland, in the 1930s. Brodie is known for her tendency to stray from the hard knowledge of the school's curriculum, to romanticize fascist leaders like Benito Mussolini and Francisco Franco, and to believe herself to be in the prime of life. (adapted from wikipedia's article on the film version)
I'll be playing the part of Gordon Lowther.
Back by popular demand! Again this December, The Post-Meridian Radio Players will be presenting our original adaptation of that 1964 Christmas classic film, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, in which Martians, concerned that their children are bored and listless and don’t want to do anything but watch Earth television programs, kidnap Santa Claus (and a couple of unlucky Earth children) from Earth and bring him to Mars to make toys so their children can be kids again. Can Santa get back to Earth in time for Christmas? Are the children of Mars doomed to a joyless life of food pills and machine-implanted learning? Is that terrifying, huge polar bear going to eat our young heroes? Will Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo show up to heckle? (Hint: No.) Find out for yourself at PMRP’s Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!
This was so much fun last year (for us and the audience!) that we’re bringing it back again this year! I'll be playing the part of TV Anchor. For dates and times and more info, visit http://pmrp.org/events/santa2018
