Photos from Overnight Sensations: ‘The Secret Agent’

For the ninth time in 14 years, I was invited to be a writer in Overnight Sensations, the 24-hour play festival put on each year by Hollins University and Mill Mountain Theatre. This year it was virtual, which was not as much fun, but I still got a good script out of it. It was produced July 10.

THE SECRET AGENT
An incompetent Russian spy is given a make-or-break assignment: Instead, he hacks into a crystal ball of a fortune teller, who is being visited by a baseball scout. Comedy ensues. Cast: Four — three male, one female.

The sports agent.
The fortune teller.
A Russian spy chief.
