I performed this piece at the very first No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia — in October 2003.
I quickly realized it was better to have others perform my work so I could watch and critique it.
That’s my wife, Trina, and my son, Keith. I hadn’t planned for him to have a part, but he saw me rehearsing and talked his way into it, so I re-wrote the ending to give him the punchline.
It’s not one of my best pieces, but it was fun to do and helped inaugurate No Shame in Roanoke.
