    Ep. 34 – Taylor Darden (The Years of the Locusts)

    In this long overdue episode, I sit down for an (in person!!!) discussion with Philadelphia Actor/Playwright Taylor Darden about his piece The Years of the Locusts. We discuss growing up Queer, our theatre influences, and most importantly figure out our Theatrical Drinking buddies.

    Ep. 33 – Jonathan Alexandratos (Ground Effect)

    Closing out the year on a strong note, this month I talk with New York playwright Jonathan Alexandratos about their play Ground Effect. We discuss Gender Roles and politics, the logistics of turning into a plane, and the vastly different stories we each told with our toys as youths.
    The scene featured in this month’s episode features Julianne Schaub and Chelsea Marie Marlowe.

    Ep. 32 – Emery Schaffer

    Ep. 32 – Emery Schaffer

    This month I return to playwright interviews by talking to playwright Emery Schaffer about her play A My Name is Allison. We discuss her inspirations, our mutual love of Harry Potter Clue, my own desires to write a play, and confirm whole-heartedly that this piece is NOT auto-biographical.
    The Scene featured in this month’s episode features actors Shaun Yates, Julianne Schaub, Miranda Thompson, and Robert Gene Pellechio.

    The Fifth Vital Sign: Take Care

    The Fifth Vital Sign: Take Care

    Elephant Room Productions presents, “Take Care,” the fourth audio play of The Fifth Vital Sign. Before the nation turned its attention to the opioid epidemic, chronic pain patients and the people who loved them had long experienced the consequences of overprescription. Once the impact was addressed, they faced the new challenge of abrupt changes in their care plans aimed to get people off of medications they never should have been given for long-term use. “Take Care” explores the impact this has on a marriage where ‘in sickness’ loses the certainty of ‘in health,’ leaving a woman desperate to be free from her pain. This audio play is written by Caity-Shea Violette, directed by Latrice Smith and features Catherine Natale and Conor Cahill. Music: Home – By Whitesand (https://youtu.be/3r8gL1vWGx0).

Julie lou hoo ,

Great advertising for playwrights

I love listening to new playwrights talk about their work and inspiration for each piece that they write. Having all these different people on the podcast creates a fantastic variety. Each episode is different and you learn something new. Having been a part of these table reads for the Elephant Ears Reading series, its phenomenal fun, as an actor to get to read for a variety of characters.
Robert, you’re a gem 🐘❤️ keep up the good work
