I will have three scripts produced next month in the U.K. edition of the “Gone in 60 Seconds” Festival of one-minute plays.
I already have one script slated for the U.S. version, which will be June 7-8 at Brooklyn College in New York. That script is “Fishing for Men.”
The U.K. version will be June 8 at the Viaduct Theatre, Dean Clough, Halifax, Great Britain.
Here are the three scripts that will be done:
THIS IS THE CAPTAIN SPEAKING
An airline pilot addresses his passengers, warning them of some danger ahead. Is he suicidal? Cast: One male.
THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.
THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
A man tries to compliment his girlfriend and promptly gets in in trouble, and his clarifications only make the matter worse. Cast: One male, one female. Running time: One minute.
“This is the Captain Speaking” and “The Whole Wide World” have previously been done as staged readings at No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia.
