OVERNIGHT SENSATIONS, the annual 24-hour play project sponsored by Mill Mountain Theatre and the Hollins University Playwrights’ Lab, isn’t a competition but my entry this year got a nice review from local journalist Dan Smith:
Here’s what Dan had to say about my piece in his review on the night’s performance:
“There were many notable moments and accomplishments, not the least of which was Dwayne Yancey’s fall-down funny “The Denmark County Barbershop Quartet Presents …,” wherein an oddball quartet gets by singing about disasters. This is, I think, the first musical I’ve seen in the 11 Overnight Sensations and the crew (Reilly Lincavicks, Michael Mansfield, Erica Musyt, J.P. Powell, Chris Shepard and Ally Thomas) carried if off beautifully. I thought it was the best of all the plays last night.”

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.

An unexpected surprise arrived in the mail recently: My one-act play JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE won top honors at an April festival of staged readings in Middleburg, Virginia sponsored by Shakespeare In The Burg.
Here’s video of the actual reading.
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.
