Comng on the heels of a spirited reading of my one-act play, Danny and the Therapy, Sanctuary Theater in New York has invited me back to workshop the opening of a challenging piece I'm working on entitled: Praying Mantis. They will be reading the first 30% or so of the piece, where the themes of love, loss, boredom, spiritual yearning and mentorship/charlatan-ness are laid out.  The theater was very positive about my first work, and Managing Director Anastasia Grammick had this to say about Danny and the Therapist:

Tom Block introduced us to "Danny and the Therapist." The audience never went 3 minutes without laughing. I think that the actors were as surprised as the characters when we were asked to accept constantly shifting rules. Core Artist Patrick Bolger, as Danny, pulled us along on this delightfully chaotic roller coaster.
