Haven't updated this blog in a month and a half. Which says what? Busy. Oh and there's lots of other places to find out information about me now. Facebook and twitter (@Mfreemanwriter) and my new website www.matthewfreemanwriter.com. And at the New Dramatists website.

But there is news to come. I'll be a part of the Brick's upcoming season, with a workshop in October and a production in early February of next year. This is a new collaboration with the Brick's Artistic Director Michael Gardner, with whom I created Exposition, Denouement and Brandywine Distillery Fire.

And some monologues from Why We Left Brooklyn appear here:


Also, I mostly think about this.

Atlanta Fringe Audio

Check out Lift Lift Lift, now playing as a part of Atlanta Fringe Audio 2014 until June 8th.

You can, in fact, donate a fuck bucks to the artist (Theater Accident) if you like what you hear. Which I think you will.

Listen here. There's lots of great content for all you NPR and podcasting junkies, who are looking for something new.

New Dramatists

In very happy news, I was offered a seven-year residency with New Dramatists. Kind of a big moment for yours truly.

I've had this blog since 2005, so that means about nine years, working with the amazing Blue Coyote Theater Group and at the Brick and the Access and all over the place. My first play produced in New York was 2001. So, it's been nearly 15 years living in New York, working Off-Off, 13 of which as a playwright. The work continues, of course. But this is a big, new step for me. Excited to see what comes next.

Yesterday was April Fool's Day

Yesterday was April Fool's Day. In order to have fun, I posted a photo. I was forced to remove it from the blog. It seemed to upset people. 

So for all of you that saw it, I apologize. I promise: I returned all the children in the photo to recess.

UPDATE: Belated April Fool's Day. This do not happen.
