They were the earliest stories many of us ever heard, and sometimes you didn't realise 'til later how incredibly horrific a lot of them were. It's the 21st of the month, so it's time to think about the type of fairytales the people of Eerie tell their children?

This month's theme is:

Planet Connections' 2017 Playwrights for a Cause Honors the NYCLU in July

Founded and curated by Glory Kadigan, the annual Playwrights for a Cause benefit, hosted by Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, addresses powerful social and topical issues in our society through the works of prominent playwrights. This year, the event will be Sunday, July 23, and will benefit the New York Civil Liberties Union with "The Protest Plays," stories of standing up to injustice written by celebrated authors, CATHERINE FILLOUX, Lyle Kessler, JOSE RIVERA, and ReGina Taylor.

The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) is one of the nation's foremost defenders of civil liberties and civil rights. Its mission is to defend and promote the fundamental principles and values embodied in the Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution, and the New York Constitution, including freedom of speech and religion, and the right to privacy, equality and due process of law for all New Yorkers.

A reception will follow the performance. The cast and production team will be announced shortly - along with location of the event and how to reserve tickets. Benefit tickets for reserved seating will be $20 - $125.

Contributing Playwrights for this event:


JOSÉ RIVERA is the first Puerto Rican screenwriter to be nominated for an Oscar. Many of Rivera's works have been produced nationally and translated into several languages. His works include "The House of Ramon Iglesias," "Cloud Tectonics," "The Street of the Sun," "Sonnets for an Old Century," "Sueño," "Giants Have Us in Their Books," "References to Salvador Dalí Make Me Hot" and "Adoration of the Old Woman." In 2003, "Cloud Tectonics" was presented in the XLII Festival of Puerto Rican Theater. Rivera also helped found the Los Angeles-based theater company, The Wilton Project. As a writer for television, Rivera contributed to the following shows: "The House of Ramon Iglesias" (1986) (TV), "Family Matters" (1989) (TV series), "The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story" (1998), "Night Visions" (2001) (TV series) and in the "Harmony" segment of "Shadow Realm" (2002). He also co-created and co-produced the NBC-TV series, "Eerie, Indiana" with Karl Schaefer. In 2002, Rivera was hired to write the screenplay for the film, "Diarios de Motocicleta (The Motorcycle Diaries)" by director Walter Salles. The movie, released in 2004, is based on Che Guevara's diary about a motorcycle trip which he and Alberto Granado had, and how it changed their lives. Rivera became the first Puerto Rican to be nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for "Best Adapted Screenplay" for the film. His screenplay won awards from the Cinema Writers Circle (Spain) and from the Argentine Film Critics Association; it was also nominated for awards by the American Screenwriters Association, the Online Film Critics Society, and the Writers Guild of America.This work with the subject of Che Guevara later led Rivera to write and perform a play entitled "School of the Americas" which focuses on Che's last few hours alive. Rivera has won two Obie Awards for playwriting, a Kennedy Center Fund for New American plays grant, a Fulbright Arts Fellowship in playwriting, a Whiting Award, a McKnight Fellowship, the 2005 Norman Lear Writing Award, a 2005 Impact Award and a Berilla Kerr Playwriting Award. His newest play, "Brainpeople," premiered in San Francisco in 2008, and was co-produced by the American Conservatory Theater. Rivera will also direct and write the screenplay for "Celestina", a film loosely adapted from his play "Cloud Tectonics", which will be produced by Walter Salles. Among his recent projects is the movie adaptation of "On the Road," a novel by Jack Kerouac.

Outside Austin’s Clive Bar, Audrey Horne and Log Lady cosplayers and other assorted Twin Peaks superfans swarmed Kyle MacLachlan. The rustic wood-paneled watering hole in the Texas capital’s Rainey Street Historic District was hosting the marketing arm of David Lynch’s television series Twin Peaks—in town to promote the May 21 premiere of the new season on Showtime—and Agent Dale Cooper was working the long line that snaked around the block like a politician. The bar’s wooden patio was decked out with tables trading swag for social media posts, with cute references to the show’s style cues throughout. Because it’s #SXSW, the brand presence was stronger than the faithfulness to the canon: Mini pies from Tiny Pie, jelly donuts from Voodoo, and cold brew from High Brew—though Agent Cooper probably stuck to the drip.

Eight bands would grace the red-velvet-draped stage, any of which would sound right at home at the Roadhouse. Think lots of delicate guitar picking and sultry rolling baritones—music imbued with drama. Aldous Harding brought her bluegrass Joanna Newsom vibes from New Zealand, and the U.K.’s Alex Cameron sang about his credit rating while his drummer channeled James Hurley’s motorcycle chic. Julie Byrne played selections from her gorgeous new LP Not Even Happiness, gracefully tuning out the swelling noise of chatter on the patio and the bleed from the stage across the street, the notes of her gentle finger picking dancing inside the stage’s tent. “In this song we use silence as an instrument,” she laughed, “so we’ll see how that goes.” Maclachlan would make another cameo before the night was through, to introduce Real Estate; he joked he finally got his “rock star moment,” but there was never any doubt about who the star of this show was.
