‘Simpsons’ scribe ‘Connecticut’-bound

'Simpsons' writer's new play opens in fall

“The Simpsons” writer Mike Reiss has scripted “I’m Connecticut,” a satirical play that will preem Dec. 1-10 at Connecticut Repertory Theater on the U. of Connecticut campus in Storrs. Paul Mullins directs.

Play tells the story of a thirtysomething Connecticut native, now living in New York, trying to come to terms with his apparent lack of personality, which he attributes to his upbringing in the New England state known as “the land of steady habits.”

The show’s cast hasn’t been nailed down, though Joyce DeWitt (“Three’s Company”) has been set for one of the major roles.

Connecticut native Reiss has written for “The Simpsons” for 18 years and co-wrote “The Simpsons Movie” and “Ice Age 3.” He also co-created “The Critic” and Showtime’s “Queer Duck.” A children’s book author, Reiss composes puzzles for NPR and Games Magazine.
