The Best of No Shame Theatre, October 2009

That’s me at The Best of No Shame Theatre in October 2009 at Studio Roanoke.

I was running the light board.

Alas, the colorful scarf blew away in windy snowstorm. I never could find it.

“The Tragic and Gruesome Death of Captain Alexander Fairweather, African Explorer”

Mike Allen as Captain Alexander Fairweather

A dark five-minute piece about why lies are dangerous. The men in a 19th century British expedition into the African jungle stage a mutiny against their captain, and hit upon an ingenious way to keep their stories straight. They have him squeezed to death by a boa constrictor. That way they can say none of them lifted a hand against him.

“The Tragic and Gruesome Death of Captain Alexander Fairweather, African Explorer” was performed at No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Va. on September 18, 2009.

The idea behind this led to my full-length script, “Fairweather Friends,” which has since been published by Eldridge Plays and Musicals.

A staged reading of a short Christmas scene — “Kids Say the Damnedest Things” — at No Shame Theatre, Roanoke, Va., in November 2008.

That’s Mike Allen as the devil and Keith Yancey as the kid.

That’s Kenley Smith as God and Mike Allen as the devil.

“He Never Barbecues”

Whenever there’s a bad crime, it seems the neighbors always say the suspect seemed strange in some way. But what if someone’s just strange and not a criminal?

Here’s my take: “He Never Barbecues.” This was a staged reading at No Shame Theatre, Roanoke, Va., in June 2007.
