Invited Reading of “I Am My Own Santa” by C. Denby Swanson, Stephen Bittrich, and David Marantz

David Marantz in I Am M Own SantaThe brand new play, I Am My Own Santa, which was written by 3 writers including yours truly, had its first (invited) reading at Access Theater last night.  The reading was sponsored by the Drilling Company and directed by Hamilton Clancy.  In the writing process, C. Denby (Colin) and I (here in Austin) have been Skyping with Dave in New York.

The play is a one-man piece about the longing for love and connection from family and friends (or even romantic connection) during the Christmas season for a middle-aged, non-practicing Jewish man.
