New York City based playwright Tim J. MacMillan just rode his bicycle from Astoria, NY to Chicago as a fundraiser for his new play Soul mates don't die, which will be at the Fringe Festival this year. This unique crowd funding campaign through rockethub.com, called "801 Miles: A Pedaling Playwrights' Plea" raised nearly $3,000.
Soul mates don't die, directed by J. Preddie Predmore and produced by MacMillan's company, Never Assume Productions, illustrates how soul mates connect regardless of sex or mortal form. Set to debut at The Doppler Stage on September 3, it tells the tale of two star-crossed newlyweds who are ripped apart when their sexually oppressed guardian angels meet and fall in love. Love can be a funny distraction.
