MODERATION Zoom Reading w/ Spooky Action Recap

Spooky Action in DC presented the first public reading of MODERATION in May of 2020. This was a real pleasure, and I took a lot from the experience, not least how strange it is to present a play meant for the stage via YouTube. That noted, this play is probably especially suited to the format. It was a great time and the talent (actors, director, etc.) absolutely crushed.

Surprisingly this website (Maryland Theater Guide) reviewed the reading, which is a first. No complaints. See here:
