w/ Damaged Furniture playwright Howie Skora

Dennis stops by the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks to talk to Howie Skora, the playwright behind the new comedy hit "Damaged Furniture," a play about a mid-level Hollywood actor who returns to his hometown of Brooklyn when a death happens in the family. Dysfunctional family hilarity ensues. Howie talks about the inspiration for the play, working with director Jim Fall, finding the perfect recliner for a key plot point, casting actors to play characters based on his parents and his favorite scenes to watch with an audience. He also talks about the sabbatical he took from his day job a few years ago to focus on writing, how writing plays has opened doors--or not--in Hollywood and the frustration that led him to switch gears from screenwriting to playwriting. Other topics include: political correctness, the movie he saw when he was way too young to see it, stealing books in college and getting caught and the hilarious fight he got into with his sister over coffee at the Tranquility Hotel. https://damagedfurniture.brownpapertickets.com/
