Miscellaneous Mental Musings of an Emerging Artist
Bilal is an ensemble member and current co-Artistic Director of the Neo-Futurists Theatre Company in Chicago, where he has written and performed in their long-running late-night hit Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind since 2004. Bilal is also a playwright of works longer than the 2-minute pieces created for TML. Notable other plays include Contraption for The Neo-Futurists and The Man Who Was Thursday (Jeff Award nomination: Best New Work — Adaptation) for New Leaf Theatre. He is a staff writer for The Paper Machete, and an occasional contributor/contender for The Whole in 30 Days podcast and Write Club.
Bilal is an unrepentant lefty liberal progressive with little tolerance for fools in the political arena. He is also a proud gamer, geek, and father.
