The Gravediggers

Pete McElligott wrote an amazing play called The Gravediggers.

The incredible folks at Theatre East produced a reading at O'Lunney's in Times Square I was fortunate enough to direct.

An excellent time was had by all!

Six Characters in Search of an Author

Patrick is honored and excited to be back at his alma mater, The University of Notre Dame, adapting and directing Pirandello's SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR as part of the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre's Mainstage Season. 

Rehearsals are well under way and the production runs November 5th-9th.  Tickets are available here!

More about the show:

FTT presents Luigi Pirandello’s 1921 masterpiece Six Characters in Search of an Author, newly adapted and directed by ND alumnus Patrick Vassel (’07). In Pirandello’s original script, the title characters commandeer the rehearsal of a play to tell their own stories, calling into question the relationship between art and life. In FTT’s adaptation, the six characters abandon the theatre for the set of a contemporary reality TV show, blurring even further the line between what is real and what is artifice.
