The year was 1967. While playing a rabbit in a Winnie-the-Pooh play here on campus, 22-year-old senior David Gerrold wrote and sold what was to become one of the most beloved Star Trek episodes ever: The Trouble with Tribbles. Mr. Gerroldâ€™s career as a writer has since spawned more than 50 novels, a dozen-plus teleplays, and the film The Martian Child, starring John Cusack, based on Gerroldâ€™s autobiographical tale of a single gay man adopting an at-risk youth. It earned Gerrold both the coveted Hugo and Nebula Awards.
Now the year is 2013 and Mr. Gerrold is back at his alma mater, back on the same theatre stages that launched his career, workshopping a new play entitled UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITED. The one-act production looks at two men planning their wedding--or so it appears on the surface. Audiences are well cautioned that all is not as it seems.
The two performances, 8pm on April 30th and May 1st, promise to be some of the hottest tickets in town and cetain to sell out. Touted in Variety and other industry media, the $12 general admission tickets will soon go on sale but CSUN students can get the advance seats now for $5 by showing their ID at the Student Union Ticket Office. The performance itself takes place in Nordhoff Hallâ€™s Little Theater (NH121).
Hosted by Associated Studentâ€™s Theatre Guild, the play is directed by Gerrold and stars two current student actors: Steven Brogan and Alex Manolopoulos, previously seen this semester in CSUNâ€™s RAGTIME and ROMEO & JULIET respectively. Producers for the Guild are Brianna McDonnell and Daniel Guerrero, and Cara Failer is the Stage Manager. Audiences are cautioned about mature themes and adult language.
