Letters To The Ethical Spectacle

You have a profound insight and an ability to impart that insight through your writing sublimely to others.


THE TURTLE TATTOO: I am proud to announce that my play "The Turtle Tattoo" will be a part of the seventh annual Midtown International Theatre Festival in New York City this summer. A burnt out EMT, Spike, falls in love with a marine biologist, Jillian, while helping her protect turtles on a Queens beach on Tuesday mornings....but he hasn't slept in so long he doesn't know what's real any more, as dead mothers, ninja raccoons and the end of the world interrupt his idyllic Tuesdays. The play will run for six performances from July 21 to August 6 in a Manhattan theatre. For more information or to buy tickets, visit Smarttix. Enter code "OOTTA" for a $3 discount. Hope to see you there! Jonathan
