Reading “Zulu Fits” @ CityLit Project

ImageTyrone Requer and Alonzo got to read an excerpt from “Zulu Fits” today at the CityLit Project, part of the Baltimore Book Festival. We had BIG FUN. It was an absolutely lovely day, and as I told Tyrone before we started—what a great day just to be a little goddamn artistic. I mentioned to Nicole (wiffee) a few other that “ain’t this grand” statements. I was fortunate to be asked. Hering your words out in the open air with people stopping by, or just momentarily “caught” by something coming from you—is a rush. Here’s the rest of the Playwriting Gang afterwards.


That’s Kathleen Barber, Barry Feinstein’s wife to my right. Barry runs the Fells Point Corner Theatre. Kathleen is a writing powerhouse. The more I stick around writing Plays, the more I appreciate times and events like this. It just hits all the buttons. There are so many “ornery” moments connected to Theater, that when an innocent one arrives you hardly know what to do with yourself. Got a wee bit humbled today……


I’ve tried MIGHTILY to describe the plot of “Zulu Fits” and try as I might, it always seems as though I’m talking about some 3-book trilogy that has some shape-shifting plot. I want it be synched-up into a neat nutty-buddy. Well, it’s not. And the more I think about it, the more I realize it’s just a freakin epic. That’s all. It has a design that by it’s very nature, by the very territory it covers, is mind-blowing (and yes, I know I’m the author of “Vivisections From The Blown Mind”). The next production of “Zulu Fits” will be the one that ARRIVES. Mark me words.

  1. Congratulations on this wonderful event. The city needs more arts and certainly more literary programs, so I was thrilled to learn of this very fun activity. I hope someone taped part or all of it, so that you can post some video teasers or a trailer of a section of the readings. Again, congrats !!
