    FUKT is an oddly uplifting personal tale of traumatic memory, murder & private parts! With zombies, a striptease and song, this immersive, fearless journey to bare all is a healing balm for anyone with a secret. Emma (Bridget Ann White) tries to perform a one-woman show about healing from trauma, only Barbara (Julia Mack) and Bobbie (Eileen Sugameli) interrupt and demand to be included. Bobbie carries the memories of the traumas Emma survived. Barbara forgot and doesn't want to remember. FUKT is about how three fragmented aspects of a traumatized person come together to heal.

    Hello, everyone!


    Back by popular demand, I am teaching my writing class again this fall. I'm offering this one and perhaps a workshop, then I most likely won't be teaching for a stretch. So jump on the Gravy Train!

    The course will be taught on Zoom for 5 weeks, focusing on strengthening the engine of your  storyline and creating compelling characters that are both grounded and original.

    If you are a veteran writer needing to be held accountable, a new writer wanting to learn the nuts and bolts, or an actor looking to create a starring vehicle, the tools and prompts from class will help while working on your current project, or to give you a jumpstart on the next one. If you are like - "I'm good. Why is she sending me this?" sometimes a guy knows a guy...so pass it on to someone you know who might be interested.

    My goal is to help you write a script that A) you are passionate about (I don't believe in trying to guess the trends) and B) is the best version of your story - not what your agent thinks you should write, or what the Artistic Directors and studios are mandating this month, but what moves YOU. For that will be your best work.

    By the end of class you will be moving towards a first draft. 


    Writing Your Story

    Take your script or solo show to the next level with award-winning playwright and David Sedaris Humor Writing Prize winner, Ali MacLean. Each week will consist of writing exercises, script analysis, providing peers with constructive criticism, and receiving feedback on weekly pages to help with revisions. Come with an idea and shape the bones of a first draft, or bring a story you have started and help get it across the finish line.

    Every Monday, September 19th-October 17th on ZOOM
    7-10 pm PST, online

    $350 - pay in full upfront, or $50 deposit and pay balance on 1st day of class. Discount for those who qualify under the ADA.

    email Aliontheairblog@gmail.com to sign up!

    Ali is a script consultant and has taught writing to people from ages 8-80. She has read and judged for several of the big screenplay contests who would sue her if she mentioned them by name.

    Here are some comments from former students:

    "I LOVE ALI AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND WORKING WITH HER. SHE IS INSIGHTFUL, SERIOUSLY FUNNY AND OFFERS REAL CLARITY AND GUIDANCE. SHE GAVE ME A FRESH SET OF EYES FOR MY SCRIPT AND REALLY PULLED ME OUT OF THE WEEDS ON THE DIRECTION I NEEDED TO GO IN. SHE'LL PULL YOU OUT OF WHEREVER YOU ARE STUCK AND YOU'LL HAVE REAL FUN DOING IT."


    "CLASS STRUCK A PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN LESSONS, WRITING PROMPTS, AND FEEDBACK. SOME OF THE PROMPTS SPURRED IDEAS FOR NEW PLAYS...PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN ALI TEACHES AGAIN!"


    "ALI'S CLASS HAS TAUGHT ME SO MANY INVALUABLE WRITING SKILLS AND EXERCISES THAT HELPED ME SO MUCH WITH MY SPECIFIC ISSUES AS A WRITER AND AS A PERSON. ALI'S INCREDIBLE SHORT EXERCISES HAVE NOT ONLY RE-INSPIRED ME...BUT MADE ME REALIZE HOW LITTLE TIME IT TAKES TO WRITE SOMETHING GREAT. "


    "ALI MADE WRITING EXCITING. IT WAS AN AMAZING JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY. I ENJOYED SHOWING UP TO CLASS EVERY WEEK BECAUSE ALI MADE THE CLASS SUCH A POSITIVE, SAFE, PLACE TO CONNECT AND CREATE. I CANNOT WAIT TO TAKE HER CLASS AGAIN!.


    "THE CLASS IS UNIQUE IN COMPARISON TO OTHER CLASSES THAT OFFER THE SAME KIND OF THING. ALI HAS SUCH A CAPTIVATING WAY OF EXPLAINING WHAT TRULY MAKES GOOD WRITING, WHILE ALLOWING FOR SO MUCH FREEDOM. SHE'S ALSO A REALLY FUN PERSON TO HANG OUT WITH FOR THREE HOURS..."

    Repost from Theatre:

    New Perspectives Theatre Company (NPTC) is pleased to announce ENDGAME, our 14th Annual Women's Work Short Play Festival, running live  Monday, August 8 to Saturday, August 13, 2022.


    The Festival performs in two programs on an alternating schedule of 4:00pm and 8:00pm, with a combined program on August 13th at 2pm and 5pm. All performances are at NPTC Studio, 458 West 37th Street (at 10th Avenue.) The festival is comprised of six plays in two programs.

    Named after Meganne George, who served as Resident Production Designer at NPTC for 19 years and was instrumental in creating its structure and design elements, the festival presents original 30-minute plays developed in NPTC's Women's Work LAB which takes writers from the first impulse for their plays to a rehearsed and staged performance for live audiences, all within six months. There is no other program of its kind in New York City. The theme of ENDGAME was inspired (as all themes have been) by the social and political discourse percolating in the U.S. at the start of a new LAB. The 2022 theme had much to draw on, from the continued presence of COVID, the aftermath of January 6th, and increasingly dire climate conditions. As always, each writer found her own take on this theme, and the resulting plays are as unique and diverse as the talented writers who created them. 

    Tickets: $20 /$15 students and seniors (65+) w/ID; TDF accepted for select performances;  FESTIVAL PASS $30 (both programs)

    Program A includes: Cassie Goes to Congressby Sonya Hayden, directed by Dani Ortiz; The End Gameby Joanna Pickering, directed by Illana Stein; and Boys Go to Marsby ALlison Merkel, directed by Jenny Greeman.

    Program A begins with Cassie Goes to Congress, which considers the “endgame” for endangered animals when, in the wake of tragedy, an emperor penguin journeys from Antarctica to Washington DC to demand an answer to climate change. The Endgame explores one woman's struggle to piece together her memories of a sexual assault and decide what to do about it, while playing a game of chess with an unlikely opponent, and Boys Go To Mars offers a darkly comic and existential dilemma as two childhood friends spend their last Halloween on Earth discussing horror movies, candy, the future of humanity, and their own destinies.

    content warning: Program A includes references to Animal cruelty/death and rape/sexual violence. this program is not suitable for anyone under 16.

    PROGRAM A ACTORS

    Celia Berk*, Emma Davis, Penelope Deen, Nadia Diamond, Gustavo Ferrari, William Franke*, Jonon Gansukh, Marie Elena O'Brien*, Taylor Petracek

    Tickets for program A

    Program B includes: Just Before Sunriseby Gena Bardwell, directed by Kubbi; The Reunion by Molly Horan, directed by Sydney Prince, and Post Scarcity Possibilities by Leela Velautham, directed by Melody Brooks.

    Program B opens with Just Before Sunrise, in whichan African American executive must reckon with her roots and the risk to her hard-earned career if she does the right thing amidst simmering racial tensions in her company. In The Reunion, one man’s 10-year obsession with his high school sweetheart takes a dark turn when he finally reconnects with her at their high school reunion. Post Scarcity Possibilities explores the absurdity of the everyday struggle to stay afloat in the midst of economic chaos and begs the question: is another way possible?

    PROGRAM B ACTORS

    Tonia Anderson*, Erica Cafarelli, Bianca Calisi, Patricia Cancio, Jen Diaz, Jake Howard, Brian Reilly, Benjamin Rowe, Meredith Wilson

    Directors are Melody Brooks, Jenny Greeman, Kubbi, Dani Ortiz, Sydney Prince and Illana Stein. Rychard Curtiss is production designer.

Vulnerability, humor, and uncensored honesty reign as they are forced to grapple with the question "Has anyone ever been safe? Are we?" OCCUPIED is a critical examination of the millennial generation's relationship to safety, told through the lens of female friendship, from 9/11 to today.
