So he's back in the UK? The last I heard he was in America and no-one here was able to track him down. He'd better give Tim Child his number - he might be needed for a certain tv show...  :)

As I won't be able to update the site for a few weeks, the aforementioned press release is attached below:

For One Night Only  - Mark Knight on stage again
in
Bill Hollenbach's
Severed Heads,
Monday, March 3rd 2003


Whats happening?
A special series of concert staged readings of plays by members of the Philadelphia Dramatists Center will be presented at the New Freedom Theatre on five consecutive Monday evenings through mid-March. The full series of Monday-night presentations includes Annette E. Sanders All Cracked Up, director Zuhairah McGill, February 24;  
Bill Hollenbach's Severed Heads, director James E. Schlatter, March 3;  
Bill Rolleri and Anna Antaramians The Armenian Question, dramaturg and director Ed Shockley, with Lee Pucklis as producer, March 10; and An Evening of One-Acts authored by Jamie J. Brunson, Ann Davidon and T.J. Stokes, March 17.

What play is Mark in?
Severed Heads brings two former campus radical activists together, now in their maturity at opposite ends of the scale of success, in an eerie confrontation complicated by dire deeds of the past and the ghost of a long-dead playwright. Its funny, its frightening, its crazy and yet it makes sense.

What part is Mark playing?
Hes playing George Buechner, a dead playwright. Sometimes mischievous, sometimes chillingly amoral, the ghost of Buechner is given new physical and intellectual life by Mr. Knight, who says of himself ìI think Ive got a lot in common  with Buechner; someone who saw a play I wrote years ago said they thought I wrote like a dead playwright...now I think about it Im not sure how he meant thatÖî

Ah! So he's still in the US.

Thanks for that, Illusion.  ;)

I wonder if he can be tempted back?

Mark Knight currently has no plans whatsoever to return to the UK, but I can report that Tim Child and Mark Knight have had contact in the last few months......but that is all I can say.  ;)

Thanks for posting that up for me Nic, although if people want the actual attachment and not just a text file they can still ask me for it [not that it looks much different or anything, of course, just an 'official' prog. rather than just text].

He should hopefully report back to me when the run of the show has ended, I have wished him best of luck with it so let us hope it is a success!  8)

"Risk and the Sexually Active"?

I'm worried about that...  :-X

Do you know if he's intending to continue and do more plays there in the foreseeable future? I'm probably in Pennsylvania for a month from mid-June, so if he lets you know of anything from then, I'd be grateful if you'd mention it to me. :)

Is this a reference to the excellent board game of "Risk"? Which was always won by the player who captured and held Australasia.
Oh look there's J.G. Ballard in a burnt-out fridge with a spitfire pilot.

Mark Knight News

Have info on Marks latest play in the USA for people.  Here is the advert I was given:

In Bill Rolleri and Anna Antaramian's play

'The Armenian Question'



Friday, May 30, 2003,  7.30pm (one night only)


Mark is  playing General Kazim Yucelen,  the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister.
The Armenian Question unfolds in the context of an arena in which survivors
of the 20th Century¹s first genocide, the killings of millions of Armenians,
challenge the Muslim-dominated Turkish government to accept moral
responsibility for these mass atrocities. General Yucelen is a huge role and
Mark's charts the complexity of this dangerous character with immense skill
and talent.


Sounds v interesting, his parts get more interesting every time :-)
