Ed Schmidt Performs “My Last Play”

Ed Schmidt Performs “My Last Play”

"I would like to invite you to my next (and last) play. It's called My Last Play, and I will perform it in my book-lined Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, apartment for twelve people a night. After thirty-two years of playwriting, at the age of forty-eight, I am walking away from the theater and, in the process, giving away all of my 2000+ theater books. One book at a time. At the end of the evening, each audience member will leave with any book from the shelves. Twelve books each night, until the shelves are empty.

"Performances begin November 11, 2010. Tickets are $20 through December 11, $25 after that. Tickets will go fast. (I know that's what everybody says, but trust me on this one.)
