My short pieces JOY TO OTHER WORLDS (the five-minute version, not the one-act version) and THIS IS ANGEL O’LORD REPORTING will be produced at Showtimers in Roanoke, Virginia as part of an evening of short Christmas plays on December 11-13.
The event is a toy-raiser for Toys for Tots. Admission: One unwrapped toy.
THIS IS ANGEL O’LORD REPORTING
The Christmas story, as reported on television – with Angel O’Lord as the television reporter on the scene in Bethlehem. That’s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Cast: Eight – 1 female, 1 male, 6 non-gender. Running time: Five minutes.
JOY TO OTHER WORLDS
A man’s Christmas tree lights are so bright that they attract the attention of an alien species, which thinks it’s a coded transmission. Comedy ensues. Cast: Four: Two male, one female, one non-gender.
