Kimberlin and Mazda Team Up at Horror Fest

Playwright V.E. Kimberlin and actor/director Richard Mazda are teaming up for an appearance at the 2nd annual Institute of Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction celebration on Saturday, March 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Queens Library in Flushing, New York.

Long-time readers of nytheatre.com may recall that Ms. Kimberlin was for several years a regular contributor of reviews to our website.

The event is being hosted by The Horror Writer Magazine and Sapphire Publications and is free to the public. The afternoon will feature author readings, film presentations, Q&A panels and an art gallery. All writers, artists and filmmakers from all levels and genres are encouraged to come and network.

Ms. Kimberlin’s fantasy-genre short story, “The Hanged Man,” was published in the print book anthology ABACULUS 2007 by Leucrota Press. (Visit www.leucrotapress.com for more information.)

The story will be read/performed by British actor Richard Mazda, who is also the artistic director of The Queens Players in Long Island City, New York. Mazda has helped to reintroduce The Grand Guignol (or Theatre of Horror) to New York audiences in the past few years with his mainstage productions of Grand Guignol classics as well as new original plays written in the Grand Guignol style. Kimberlin has had several plays produced by Mazda and The Queens Players in various one-act festivals and is currently writing her own Grand Guignol-inspired play. (www.thequeensplayers.com)

Kimberlin and Mazda will make their presentation between noon and 2:30 p.m. Kimberlin will be available throughout the event for questions and book signings. ABACULUS 2007 and the recently released ABACULUS II will be available for sale at her table.
