106. Brian Stanton: "Blank" and "@ghostkingdom"

Brian Stanton is a Los Angeles-based stage actor. He's currently starred in a new play titled Final Interview in Los Angeles and will immediately move on to star in Plaza Suite by Neil Simon in February in Mammoth Lakes, CA. In the world of adoption, Stanton is most known for his original solo play BLANK, the true story of his adoption and search for identity. BLANK's Hollywood premiere catapulted Stanton to perform all over the US and Canada, earning Best Solo Acting awards in New York and Los Angeles. Stanton's most recent work @ghostkingdom, originally written as a play, was filmed during the pandemic due to theatre closures. Stanton has held screenings of his original film at film festivals as well as for adoption support and educational conferences. The Love International Film Festival honored Stanton with Best Screenwriter and Best Actor awards. Stanton will be presenting @ghostkingdom in person at the NAAP/Right To Know conference in Louisville, KY late March https://untanglingourroots.org/?fbclid=IwAR2rG6DBOsuHFzPr_NqZufPHVDTCBDSyGEAgSF17AkKMXDZt3i4X7dEHmsY and a few months later in June for the Forget Me Not Family Society in Vancouver.
