Seating is first come first serve.


Influenced by Cubism, Jazz, and vanguard movements and approaches, it is no surprise that Gregory's work is complex.  Just as this writing opened doors for him about cultural consciousness: i.e. art as exploration; and risk of discovering Self, this Staged Reading offers layered contemplation of everyday life experiences. 

With poetry from Book Two Begins, a one-act play, A Beautiful Day, an excerpt from the play, She's A Beauty , an interview with Kevin Killian: poet, author, playwright (of primarily LGBT literature), and the co-founder of the Poet's Theatre and the New Narrative movement in San Francisco.
