I Will Look Forward To This Later

starstarstar


I Will Look Forward To This Later is the story of author Wyatt Holloway who passes away leaving his family to deal with the aftermath of a tumultuous life fuelled by Bourbon, art and infidelity. James Himelsbach plays Wyatt, the eccentric playboy who is a seamless combination of Ricardo Montalban from Fantasy Island and Henry Kane from Poltergeist.

His two sons, Robert and Samuel, played by Edward Bauer and Ben Beckley were the perfect opposites and helped to ground the story in reality. Betsy, Wyatt’s dedicated and now widowed wife is a strong-willed character who, like Wyatt, had been ignoring her marriage and was now having to face the reality of who they had grown into.

I Will Look Forward To This Later is rich with beautiful writing and the staging was much like William Boroughs’ A Naked Lunch in that it blended fantasy and reality into one intelligent and provocative package with just enough risk-taking to keep me at the edge of my seat.
