Nine short plays produced in Maryland

“Damsel Not in Distress”

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.

I had three pieces in the 2017 edition of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in Leeds, Great Britain: TWO SQUIRRELS ON A POWERLINE, NOBODY EVER ASKS ME and THE SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT.

Here, at last, is the video from that show.

My name is on a show poster in the UK!

Photos from “The Monkey At the Wedding” in Texas

Louis Antonelli shares these photos from the recent production of my one-act THE MONKEY AT THE WEDDING by Red River Revue in Clarksville, Texas in early May.

Yes, the monkey really is a character.

Biker dude and dudette.

More photos here.

This script was previously produced at a high school in Massachusetts in 2015 where it won four awards.
