Final Weekend for You Are Not Special by Brian Hanson

Beowulf Alley’s Late Night Theatre

Depression, Unrequited Love and An Embarrassing Narrator


(Tucson, AZ) Late Night Theatre at Beowulf Alley, 11 South 6th Avenue, Downtown between Broadway and Congress, presents the final two performances of You Are Not Special by Brian Hanson. Performances are on Friday and Saturday September 24 and 25 at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 cash at the door. For additional information, please call (520) 977-5218.

You Are Not Special is the story of Jeremy and Ann and Ann’s her boyfriend that keeps them apart. Add the devious Narrator who delights in sharing all of their private, innermost thoughts with the universe. Funny, touching and occasionally both profane and sacred, Hanson’s play is a smart phone snapshot of the lives of twenty-something gamers, poets and baristas.

Tucson critic Chuck Graham writes of Hanson’s last play, I’m Sorry I Liked You,

“What makes I'm Sorry I Liked You special is the dialogue. Hanson's future is as a playwright. Although the language he gives these characters is filled with profanity, it also contains masterful psychology. Whether he is writing with a gift for intuition or the wisdom of masterful insight, Hanson nails it."

You Are Not Special  features Mike Miller, Nicole Scott, Scott O’Brien and Theresa Simone. The play is directed by the author.
