Meet our readers: Ira S. Murfin

We are so geeked to have Ira Murfin reading with us on Sunday. Here’s some cool stuff you probably didn’t know about him:

Ira S. Murfin is a writer and theatre artist from Chicago. He is currently a doctoral candidate in the Interdisciplinary PhD in Theatre & Drama at Northwestern University. His dissertation examines talk-based performances in the post-1960s American avant-garde, which is to say he writes about talking and talks about writing. Critical and creative writing has appeared in elimae, Fiction at Work, Chicago Art Criticism, Theatre Topics, Theatre Journal, Theatre Research International, 491, Review of Contemporary Fiction, and Requited, where he is now also the Performance Editor. His solo and collaborative performance work has been seen at Rhinofest, MCA Chicago, Links Hall, and the Chicago Cultural Center, among other places, and he is a veteran of Chicago reading series from Red Rover to Write Club. He has been a member of two theatrical laboratories: the Laboratory for Enthusiastic Collaboration and the Laboratory for the Development of Substitute Materials.

Ira and the rest of our fabulous April lineup will be telling stories at 8pm, come earlier for dinner & drinks, reservation at The Savoy recommended.
