My short play based on the mass shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007 has gotten produced a lot this year as part of various theatrical productions that have risen up in the wake of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida this spring. In September, THE CELLPHONES OF THE DEAD was included in the Safety Off show at The Phoenix Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Producer Casey Holmes shares this photo gallery.
THE CELLPHONES OF THE DEAD
A police officer’s somber monologue: He was at the scene of a mass shooting, and could literally hear the awful news start to spread — as the cellphones of the victims started to ring with desperate messages from their frantic friends.
In June 2018, I held a private staged reading for my script REVENGE OF THE FAIRY QUEEN. Dylan Kennedy Grey directed at the Bower Center for the Arts in Bedford, Virginia.
I have two wonderful photo galleries from this — one from Bobbie Daniels and one from, well, um, me. Hers are better.
REVENGE OF THE FAIRY QUEEN
The unauthorized sequel to Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Titania realizes that Oberon has duped her into falling in love with a mortal transformed into an ass. Furious, she plots revenge, to be carried out on Midwinter’s Day. Her plot, though, goes awry and many complications ensue. Cast: 12 – 4 female, 5 male, 3 non-gender.
Here are some more photos — from other photographers — from Overnight Sensations 2018 and, in particular, my piece THE DENMARK COUNTY BARBERSHOP QUARTET PRESENTS . . . .

My 7th 24-hour play festival with Mill Mountain Theatre and the Hollins University Playwrights’ Lab resulted in THE DENMARK COUNTY BARBERSHOP QUARTET PRESENTS . . . in which a ragtag barbershop quartet presents Hamlet to the tune of “In the Good Old Summertime.”
Below is rehearsal video from a short song about the Hindenburg, followed by the big finish about Hamlet.

So, here’s how rehearsal for this year’s 24-hour play project at Mill Mountain Theatre played out.
For the 7th time, I was a writer in OVERNIGHT SENSATIONS, the annual 24-hour play project sponsored by Mill Mountain Theatre and the Hollins University Playwrights’ Lab. I’ve been invited a few other times but had schedule conflicts.
Here are some photos to show how the process unfolds.

Radcliffe Creek School in Chestertown, Maryland produced nine of my short plays in May — two ten-minute scripts and seven that run about five minutes. Of note: One of those 10-minute plays is “A Vampire Soap Opera,” which I wrote in 2010 as part of the annual 24-hour play festival Overnight Sensations in Roanoke, Virginia produced by Hollins University and Mill Mountain Theatre. I’ve participated in maybe a half dozen of those festivals; each time I try to write a script that I think will have a life beyond that particular festival. This, though, is the first time I’ve actually had one of those scripts go on to a second life.
