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.

Week 3 of ‘Exchange of Gifts touring show

My first self-produced show is now history. The Christmas show EXCHANGE OF GIFTS played nine shows in different different locations up and down western Virginia in December 2019.

Next up: EXCHANGE OF GIFTS will be published in 2020 by Norman Maine / Big Dog Plays.

In Bedford: Svetlana shows Tilly what she’s found.

Week 2 of ‘Exchange of Gifts’ touring show

On weekend 2, my self-producing touring Christmas show EXCHANGE OF GIFTS was in Critz at the Reynolds Homestead on Dec. 13, in Monterey at the Highland Center on Dec. 14 and in Clifton Forge at the Masonic Theatre on Dec. 15. Good crowds in all, but Monterey — the smallest town on our 9-date tour — had the biggest crowd of all!

Stuck in the airport — at Reynolds Homestead in Critz.

What’s up, doc? In Monterey.

God, the waitress, the devil. Or so I assume!

Pretty sure that’s the devil on the left.

Photos from ‘Let There Be Lights!’ in Iowa

Mills Masquers Theatre in Glenwood, Iowa produced my one-act LET THERE BE LIGHTS! on Dec. 6-8, 13-15, 2019. Director Jeannie Lorimor sends this message and these photos: “We had an amazing turn out Friday and Saturday and we sold out our theater Sunday night! The kids did amazing! And I heard so many compliments on “Let there be Lights” The audience ate it up! One more weekend of shows to go. Friday and Saturday this week we still have seats but Sunday is filling up again and will most likely sell out again! Thank you for writing such an amazing piece! It has been a blast to direct!” You can find the full gallery here.

A cheerleader!

Sunglasses required.

Fancy dress.
