A Designing Odyssey
Katie, the students, and I have started designing and building some props (see adjacent photo) and set pieces for Alta Vista Middle School’s fall production of The Odyssey. It’s an abridged version of Mary Zimmerman’s adaptation of the classic poem. We’re working with lots of cardboard, felt, hot glue and imagination! The show goes up mid November, 2018.
A Staged Reading of Patrick's New Plays
Patrick's new plays, COPY CAT and SPINNING will be read by professional actors at the Shotgun Studios at 1201 University Ave. in Berkeley, CA on Monday July 2nd, 2018 at 7pm. Admission is free. Wine and chips will be served. Feel free to message Patrick with any questions about the event. Just click on CONTACT in the header above.

Patrick illustrated the posters for the 52nd Street Project's summer plays. George Babiak did the layout. Check them out on display on the corner of 52nd Street and 10th avenue in NYC and then go see the shows. More info HERE.
Set Design for '12th Night' at Alta Vista Middle School, May 2018
Patrick and his wife Katie conceived, designed and built the set for the spring play with the help of several AVS students. Katie also directed. Junie the dog is the canine stand-in in the photos.
Performance in May, 2018
Patrick is performing with StageWrite, an organization that teaches playwriting to public school students in San Francisco. StageWrite presents a spring showcase of student work performed by professional actors along with a live rock band!
Patrick got to draw the cover for Alta Vista School's 2017/2018 yearbook. The drawing is of a Rube Goldberg machine that contains elements that represent the lower and middle school. The student-run yearbook committee gets credit for the cover idea. Patrick just drew it!
