We're creating theatricalized excerpts from the literary novel, "The Drifts" (Coach House Books, 2010) to put onstage as The Drifts Live at The Hollywood Fringe and to conduct accompanying community-based workshops. We hope that our Kickstarter campaign—and you—will support this effort. We've got 30 days.

Author/Actor Thom Vernon (The Fugitive, Seinfeld, etc.) moves into Julie, Charlie, Dol & Wilson. In a mean Arkansas blizzard, four people fight like hell to get what they want. 60 mins. at The Complex Theatre in Hollywood. 

The good news: we reach our pledge goal, we get the support. The bad news: we don't reach our goal, we get nada, nothing, zilch.

Do us a huge favor and pass this on to 1-2 friends. A little, a few times over, goes a long, long way. 

Thank you.

Goal: $2,000.
