Here’s a limited time, limited availability cool thing. On November 2-4 and 9-11 the all for One theater group will be presenting a Christmas play entitled An O. Henry Christmas. It’s located at the Main branch of the Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN. Doors open at 7:30 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, 2:00 PM on Sundays.
Why is this cool? Well, in no small part because I am in it! Hooray!

Oh, you want to know what they play is about?
Well, the play is set on Christmas Eve, 1893 and is based (in the loosest possible sense of the word) on the life and works of the author O. Henry. The best way to think of the script might be to consider it what Christmas Eve, 1893 would have been like if O. Henry had written it.
In the play, O. Henry finds himself on the run from the police after escaping from jail and winds up at an abandoned railroad spur in New York. There he finds a collection of homeless bums (including yours truly) who he helps to pass the cold and lonely night by telling them stories that embody the spirit of Christmas.
If that doesn’t get you excited, you can also come and laugh at me acting like a drunk. Your call.
