I’m excited to announce a reading of my screenplay Powder River on September 19th, 2013 as part of the Seattle International Film Festival’s Catalyst program by some of Seattle’s most talented actors.
Powder River is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth set during what was probably the last great range wars of the American Old West, the War on Powder River. I love great westerns and this story in particular since the War on the Powder River is widely seen as the event that ended the Mythic West and ushered in the modern age. Stories at the cusp of two ages offer so much opportunity for drama and there are several uncanny similarities between the actual events of the War on the Powder River (also called the Johnson County War) and the story of Macbeth.
I’m excited to announce that there will be a dramatic reading of my testosterone-fueled poker thriller DEAD MAN’S HAND this week in Seattle with many of Seattle’s finest actors. This life-and-death tale of modern male camaraderie and betrayal is my own Reservoir Dogs.
DEAD MAN’S HAND
A staged screenplay reading of a screenplay by Douglas Horn. Produced by Ronald Leamon.
Performed by: Basil Harris, Rich Morris, Jesse Lee Keeter, Tony Doupe, Michael Patten, Peter Dylan O’Connor, Thomas Brophy, and Brian Desmond.
The screenplay reading is Friday, May 10th at 6:00 PM at the SIFF Cinema at the SIFF Film Center in Seattle Center. (Near the Key Arena, Seattle peeps! NOT the SIFF Cinema Uptown.)
Because Friday is a busy night in Seattle film circles (NWFF Gala, STIFF, etc), it looks like there may still be some availability for this free reading. So I thought I’d open it up to readers of my blog. (And, I suppose anyone who links to the page) to join us. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat. There is a seat limit and once we reach that we’ll have to stop accepting RSVPs.
I hope you can come by. This is one of my favorite scripts and the cast is remarkable.
