The Planet Connections Festivity Inc. is New York’s premiere eco-friendly/socially conscious not-for-profit arts festival. Fostering a diverse cross-section of performances, the festivity seeks to inspire artists and audiences both creatively and fundamentally, in a festive atmosphere forming a community of like-minded artists. At the heart of the festivity are individuals striving to create professional, meaningful theatre, film, music and art, while supporting organizations, which give back to the community at large.
“Donkey” by John Patrick Bray is slated to be published and licensed with Next Stage Press. This is will be Bray’s third publishing with Next Stage Press, Bray’s other plays available for licensing with Next Stage Press include Hound and Liner Notes, which were also produced at the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity (2009, 2010); Trickster at the Gate, and short plays in 64 Squares and Game Night. Donkey will be available for licensing in late June 2014.
Founded by playwright Gene Kato in 2009, Next Stage Press operates as an independent play publisher and licensing agent serving professional, community, and academic theatres.
Donkey will also soon be added to Indie Theatre Now’s catalog, via special arrangement with Next Stage Press. Indie Theatre Now is a website dedicated to primarily NY Indie Theatre, created and operated by Martin and Rochelle Denton. Bray’s other published works with Indie Theatre Now include Hound, Liner Notes, Goodnight Lovin’ Trail, and On Top. The latter two plays are frequently performed in Rising Sun’s repertory of short plays.
Eloise’s monologue from Donkey will be published in the forthcoming Smith & Kraus anthology The Best Stage Monologues for Women 2014 edited by Lawrence Harbison.
Donkey was a finalist for the 2012 Last Frontier Theatre Conference, and earned Bray the status of Finalist for the 2010 Hangar Theatre Playwriting Residency.
