Ma-Yi Writers Lab Member Mrinalini Kamath’s radio play, STUFF will be presented at Mission to (dit)Mars, a theatre arts collective serving Queens artists.

Inspired by the NY Times article “The Lonely Death of George Bell,” STUFF tells the story of lives that intersect when a man dies alone in his cluttered apartment. A radio play about living alone in modern times. STUFF is directed by Colette Robert and live foley provided by Tony Vo.
The evening is presented by Mission to (dit)Mars co-founders Kari Bentley-Quinn, Don Nguyen ( also a Ma-yi Writers Lab Member) Meredith Packer, and Laura Pestronk.
On the unique nature of the play format, Don Nguyen explains:
“We wanted to immerse the audience in the world of this play which is why we decided to bring in a live foley artist to add that extra dimension to the night’s performance. It’s a whole different set of challenges than what we’re used to, but we’re up for it.”
