Not Here Right Now...the hilariously touching tale of a tall man in tight spaces finding clarity and avoiding a quarter-life crisis in the Far East, all while wearing strappy-velcro sandals (except to the wedding of the century) premieres at Synchronicity Theatre in Atlanta, GA on July 1st.
Royce Bable's new play Not Here Right Now is an immersive live one-man show using creative storytelling and mixed media to showcase Royce's inspiring journey from corporate citizen to world traveler.

This one man show, written by Royce Bable (Partnership Director of the A3C Festival & Conference) and directed by Ina Williams, aims to inspire diverse audiences to take meaningful and fulfilling risks to achieve happiness. Bable says "we want to challenge people to dare to do something different, and discover not only who they are, but who they want to be."
