Photos: ‘The Armadillo Queen’ in Colorado

She’s the Armadillo Queen and she doesn’t like it.

Fountain Community Theater in Fountain, Colorado produced my full-length script THE ARMADILLO QUEEN June 12-13 as an outdoor show. The show had been scheduled for indoors in April but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. More photos here.

This was the premiere production. The show first had a staged reading in 2016 at Renaissance Theatre in Lynchburg, Virginia. It will be published later this year by Norman Maine / Big Dog Plays.

Photos from ‘The Girl Who Made Emus Believe They Could Fly’ in Mass.

Emus take flight.

The Quannapowitt Players Suburban Holidays festival in Reading, Mass. produced my one-act
THE GIRL WHO MADE EMUS BELIEVE THEY COULD FLY in November and December 2019. Out of the blue, they sent me these photos with the note: “It was perhaps the best received play this year.”

‘Priorities in Aisle 14’ produced via Zoom from Minnesota

The Coronavirus One-Minute Play Festival produced 625 one-minute virus-related plays over six days in April — with a different batch of plays being performed each night, via Zoom, by a different theatre. My short piece PRIORITIES IN AISLE 14 came on the final night, April 17, and was performed by students at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Jessica Yates played the main character.

Phoebe Thoroughman as a screaming customer in the toilet paper aisle.

Anna Schloerb as another screaming customer. All the students screamed at the same time — as the script called for — but these were the only two that broke through the Zoom logjam.

Photos from ‘The Curious Case of Jockstrap Malone’ in Toronto

Turns out he shouldn’t have insulted the Girl Scouts. Revenge is sweet.

My one-act THE CURIOUS CASE OF JOCKSTRAP MALONE is running in the New Ideas Festival at the Alumnae Theatre in Toronto — my first show in Toronto! Now I can say I’ve been produced in New York, London, Melbourne, Chicago, Los Angeles . . . and Toronto! Along with a bunch of other places. Alas, I had planned to see the show but cancelled my plans amid the COVID-19 pandemic fears.

Photos from ‘There’s A Reason Why They Call It Falling’ in Florida

They’re both at Lover’s Leap, trying to jump off but run into each other. Injuries result.

My 10-minute play THERE’S A REASON WHY THEY CALL IT FALLING had its premiere in February at South Walton High School in South Walton, Florida. A lot more photos here.

You know that really hurts.

But she has a different plan.

Photos from ‘Troubleshooting’ in Florida

Jiggle the mouse, he said.

My 10-minute play TROUBLESHOOTING — which previously won an award in Australia that I couldn’t accept — was produced by South Walton High School in South Walton, Florida in February. The full photo gallery is here.

Director: Carissa Groves

The show is set up to be gender-neutral. In Australia it was done with two women. Here the characters were Marie, the office worker, played by Molly Turner, and Tyler, the IT help desk, by Spencer Eichberger.

Of course, he’s not going to bother coming to the cubicle when he can do it over the phone.

This will take care of the problem, for sure.

Here’s another photo and the poster.
