My ten-minute play THE PICTURE WINDOW is included in this year’s new works festival at the Greenbrier Valley Theatre in Lewisburg, West Virginia Feb. 2-4.
Here’s a Q&A with me and some of the other playwrights.
Today, I got this fan mail from an actress in New Jersey who recently appeared in one of my plays:
“I am playing Lois in “Catch of the Day” at Old Library Theatre in Fair Lawn, NJ and it has been such a great experience. So many of the things in this are really wonderful (I especially enjoy doing the telephone scene and the part where Edwin and I are nose to nose arguing over the poison fish) and the audience is laughing (of course not always in the same places). This afternoon is our last performance but I just wanted to let you know that I am so happy you wrote such a fun, relatable piece to perform.”
More feedback here.
I held a staged reading of my new comedy, THE CACTUS RUSTLERS, at Showtimers in Roanoke, Virginia on January 14, 2017.
Here’s some of the feedback I got:
“This thing is a hoot!”
— Brian L.
“This play was great fun! It reminded me of the wonderful Greater Tuna plays about West Texas, only with more actors. We definitely left smiling.”
— Diana C.
— Rebecca G.
THE CACTUS RUSTLERS
Two young women are bored with their lives and wish they were living in the Old West. They read a newspaper story about how there’s a lucrative black market for cacti, and so set off to become cactus rustlers. Adventure ensues, which includes a space alien. Cast: 12 – 7 female, 5 male.

My five-minute piece THE RECRUITER was produced in Houston Nov. 9-19, 2016 as part of the 2016 Five Minute Mile Play Festival by Cone Man Running Productions at the Obsidian Theatre. Here’s the video. Earlier I posted some rehearsal photos.
A scene about gender discrimination in college sports. A college recruiter shows up at a rural school asking about a particular football player; oblivious to the softball player banging home runs in batting practice. Cast: Two adult males, one teenage girl.
This is a stand-alone piece, but it’s also part of a collection of short pieces about baseball that make up my full-length play PLAY BALL! Some other individual pieces of that have been produced, as well — “Sunset in North Dakota” and “Deep Into October.”
