In the dingy confines of the Blue Moon Motel, on a full moon night, Carly and Ricky try parenting Baby, a child they just kidnapped… But Baby is unlike any child they’ve plucked from God’s green Earth. Oh no, unlike the many before her, Baby is of a special breed.
Travis Williams is incredibly excited and honored to once again be part of WildClaw Theatre’s Deathscribe! Previous Deathscribe finalists include The Wall and Strange Weather. Hailing from Ohio, Travis is a Network Playwright with Chicago Dramatists and is currently performing in the Chicago Production of Million Dollar Quartet as understudy for Johnny Cash and Sam Phillips. In addition to writing plays, Travis is writing and developing an original web series with Stone Soup Theatre Project, that will be shooting in Chicago during the spring and summer of 2016. Also, being a huge fan of comics, Travis is working on a graphic novel horror anthology, which will feature several adaptations of his horror radio plays that have been sacrificed on the altar of WildClaw’s Deathscribe.
