“Blood” writer/actor opens up about his emotional play by Kevin M. Thomas


Eric Inman as writer and co-star in BOUND BY BLOOD

The Bay Area’s quadruple talent threat now adds playwrite to his resume. Some may remember him as the musical Charlie Brown. Others might recall his great work as director of the Bay Area premiere of the musical “9 to 5.” But now Eric Inman is back as writer (and co-star) in “Bound by Blood,” opening Saturday, Oct. 6 in San Francisco.

He’s put his talent and head together with Michelle Ianiro who has worked with him as an actress, and now she is directing and producing his first work as playwrite, which actually started as a one act play.

We sat down with Inman and learned up close and personal about the intimate story of his play and how he and his cast are bound by “Blood.”

Inman tells of how and why he mixed some comedic moment in what otherwise is a heavy drama.

We also find out that, using the Boxcar Theatre stage (even though it’s not produced by Boxcar), that promptness is paramount!

“Bound by Blood” plays Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm through Oct. 27. Except for the $10 preview  (Oct. 5) and $25 opening night (Oct. 6), “Blood” is only $20 – including the special LGBT fund raising performance on Oct. 12th.
