One-Night-Only Performance “TRIGGERS” to Star Manu Intiraymi & Kipleigh Brown

If you’re in the LA area on April 23rd, don’t miss Manu Intiraymi (VOY’s Icheb) and Kipleigh Brown (ENT’s Jane Taylor) in a one-night-only performance of “TRIGGERS”, a neo-noir drama showing at The Blank Theatre Company in Hollywood. The performance is directed by James Kerwin who you may remember as the writer/director of Yesterday Was a Lie, an independent neo-noir film starring Kipleigh Brown and Chase Masterson (DS9’s Leeta).

“TRIGGERS” is a neo-noir drama about a disgraced police detective who is haunted (figuratively and literally) by her mistakes and driving need to make everything right. However, nothing fits neatly within prescribed boundaries — least of all, her.

The Blank Theatre Company was founded in Hollywood in 1990, and is committed to the enrichment of Hollywood’s cultural life through production of first-rate theatre, education of current and future artists, and creation of groundbreaking new works for the theatrical repertoire. The Blank’s Living Room Series runs nearly every Monday night from Labor Day to Memorial Day, presenting “workshop” plays to the public.

Sorry. I’ve never been first before. I got carried away.

I think they ended Icheb’s story way too quickly… The other borg Children were meh, but Icheb could have a compelling story, if it were not really a mirror of 7 of 9’s story.

Wow! Kipleigh Brown is smokin’!

Manu Intiryami really stunk it up as Ichib. Of course, the idea of orphaned Borg children becoming part of the Voyager crew was plain silly and contrived.

Worth mentioning that this “groundbreaking new work” was penned by playwright Val Stulman . . . . Thanks!

@Red Dead Ryan: you are welcome to your opinion of course, but you don’t have to be a jerk about it. I found Manu Intiryami’s performance as Icheb quite engaging, especially when he played against Q’s son and the story about his parents sacrificing him to the Borg.

I would like to show my support for the Icheb character.

2. lol

5. I liked Icheb. Nice kid. Heck, it wasn’t any more silly or contrived than anything else on voyager (and, actually, a lot less so), I think.

@5 And yet Filmation almost gave us just that in 1974 with the original TAS pitch… Amazing that Voyager re-used that idea.
Frankly, Icheb was the *much more believeable* ex-Borg. Plus the story of his parents’ sacrificing him to appease the Borg (the Gods) gave him a very Isaac-like quality, which frankly I found refreshing. Frankly, I’d have rather seen Icheb replace Kim.

@Daoud: Can you please expand on what the original animated series pitch was about? They were planning on including kids on the Enterprise crew? Would they have been cadets? I have not heard this before. Any info you can provide will be appreciated.

I thought Icheb was rather emptily written, but Manu did a really good job giving him warmth, dimension, and soul, all while playing within the ex-borg emotional framework. You also got the sense that the character was ridiculously smart – there was a lot going on “behind the eyes,” so to speak, with him. Even when he wasn’t written well.

Is Intiryami or Intiraymi?

Nah, Manu sucked as an actor, but to be fair, the character he played was made up out of thin air and poorly written.

The truth hurts, unfortunately. But it has to be told.

@Red Dead Ryan: your “truth” is your own. You seem to like hurting people. That is unfortunate.

This is obviously just a troll with some type of personal beef against Manu. Just ignore him.

And yes, Kipleigh Brown is a total babe!


“@Red Dead Ryan: your “truth” is your own. You seem to like hurting people. That is unfortunate.”

Just how have I been enjoying “hurting people” exactly? Somehow I doubt Manu reads these comments, and even if he did, he’d have no problem with what I have posted because he knows criticism comes with the territory of being an actor!


“This is obviously just a troll with some type of personal beef against Manu. Just Ignore him.”

Yeah, I’m holding a grudge against Manu because I happen to think he doesn’t have any acting chops! Riiiiiiiggghhhhhttttt!!!!! LOL!

@Renner, yes you are absolutely right about that guy being a troll. Good advice.
