One thing that’s happened during this year of the pandemic: I’ve had a lot of script requests from non-theatres. Some have come from book clubs, some have come from families looking for home entertainment. Some haven’t worked out, but the Monday Night Book Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota did do a Zoom reading of my full-length A DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS on Dec. 20, 2020 (which wasn’t a Monday night but the whole year has been out of whack).
Organizer Stephanie Pearson sends this fan mail:
“We had a wonderful time reading your play at our bookclub tonight. I am the woman in the black (stage direction) with the phone. We’ve been together over 20 years so it was fun to connect with this play!
Everyone enjoyed themselves! I loved how you integrated A Christmas Carol in with the plot along with the funny (and cranky) Lady Crumblebum. I couldn’t stop laughing during these scenes. Also, you had some great references on gender roles (ie: women doing dishes) which I think we are still doing today 100 years later. Funny!
Thanks for making our zoom holiday bookclub a memorable one. We appreciate your willingness to share and provide us with a great script to read.”

Here are some photos from the dress rehearsal for SHAKESPEARE’S LOST CHRISTMAS PLAY at Eskdale High School in Millard County, Utah. First, the back story: Director Lois Faber had produced two scripts of mine a few years ago. In September, she contacted me out of the blue to say she was looking for a Christmas play for her class to perform. She’d come up short. It need to fit a specific number of students, with a specific gender mix, a specific length, and needed to be performed socially distanced. Oh, and it would be nice if it would address the pandemic. So I wrote a script to fit those specifications — except I changed the setting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the plague in Shakespeare’s day.
