Name: Mark Adrian Ford
What is your current project?
Toothpicks VII: Khazouk
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
The Elektra Theatre as part of the New York New Works Theatre Festival. It’s a beautiful space in a vivacious Midtown location.
What’s next for you?
I’ve finished writing a series of limerick fables for my Nephew, which I am hoping to have illustrated and published before the year’s end. My second full-length stage play “Moulten Isle” is currently being reviewed by my mentors for potential production. I’ll also be acting in a tribute film directed by my friend Rachael Silberman in North Carolina later this summer.
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
My Gran, Gloria. She’s a legend and always puts things into the most brilliant perspective for me. I feel peaceful and motivated by her whenever I see her or hear her speak.
