Event

True Believers
True Believers by Local Playwright, Thom Dunn tells the story of aspiring comic book artists, psychotic fanboys, cybernetically enhanced humans and girls who dress like Princess Leia as their lives intertwine during a week at a comic book convention.

With character descriptions that include phrases like "Recently divorced. She took his entire Star Wars collection in the settlement. Yes, that includes his Han Solo in Carbonite coffee table. Not that he's bitter or anything." and "Seriously didn't mean to make Wolverine gay," this play is sure to entertain, engage and bring out your inner nerd!

About the Playwright:
Thom Dunn is a Boston-based writer, musician, homebrewer, and new media artist. He enjoys Oxford commas, metaphysics, and romantic clich├ęs (epecially when they involve whiskey and/or robots). A graduate of Emerson College, his plays have been performed in Boston and Hollywood. His first play, "Absolution," was originally published in THREAD Magazine in 2008, and his since received several productions, and was recognized as the best of Boston short plays in 2010. His newest full-length, "True Believers" was recently awarded with a workshop fellowship at the Berkshire Fringe Festival. His comic books have been published by GrayHaven Comics. By day, Thom is a mild-mannered Web & New Media Manager at the Huntington Theatre Company and blogs regularly for a number of websites, including Quirk Publishing and FiveByFiveHundred.com. He grew up outside of New Haven, in the same town as Eli Whitney and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (but not at the same time). He regularly directs and performs as guitarist and keyboardist for Boston's premiere all-male Lady Gaga glam rock cover band, ALEJANDRO AND THE FAME. Thom was once paid $200 to dress up like Spider-Man and sign autographs at a Wal-Mart. This remains the single greatest moment of his life, despite his best efforts to top it. More at thomdunn.net
