SHOW ME – original audio short

Artist Soapbox asked me last Autumn to contribute a piece of short fiction in fundraising support of their new creative work Jesus Pancake. I’d been toying with the idea of a magical realism spin on two true family narratives and thought this was the perfect vehicle. The resulting piece, Show Me, has been recorded as an audio drama!

Note for my usual audience: SHOW ME is not intended for children.

Rural West Texas, August of 1966. A skeptically hopeful fifteen-year-old returns home from church camp determined to uncover definitive proof of the existence of angels. The outcome of her act of faith yields lasting ramifications.

Many, many thanks to Tamara Kissane and Aurelia Belfield for still considering me a North Carolina playwright and inviting me into this project; and to collaborators Paige Purgar (Narrator), Marleigh Purgar-McDonald (The Girl), Rachel Klem (director), Griffin James (production manager), and Jasmine Hunjan (sound designer).

If you enjoy supporting artists and have the means, please consider helping to fund Jesus Pancake on IndieGogo or joining me in my support of Artist Soapbox in general.
