Powerstories Theatre in Tampa, Florida will present my full-length script MISS MITCHELL’S COMET as part of their virtual festival Voices of Truth in March. The theatre only produces plays that are based on true stories about women and girls. My play is based on the true story of Maria Mitchell, America’s first female astronomer — and the first North American of any gender to discover a comet (1847). The show airs virtually Friday, March 12 at 8 p.m., starring Katerina Yancey of Fincastle, Virginia and Scott Cooper of Waterloo, Ontario. Here’s the logo for the show, designed by Samantha Sylvester of Mississauga, Ontario. I highly and happily recommend her work. Earlier I posted this video interview I did with the theatre.

The Quannapowitt Players Suburban Holidays festival in Reading, Mass. produced my one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA as a video production that was online on their site December 2020-January 2021. Here it is in on mine:
The Baltimore playwright Susan Middaugh left this review of my one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA on the New Play Exchange.
“ What starts out as a downer evolves into an uplifting and romantic Christmas play about two lonely people who find each other at just the right time. Funny line: “They (poinsettias) might make your cat sick.” Dwayne to the rescue! ”
There’s been a real run of reviews on the New Play Exchange. A reviewer named Jared Kobre Alessandro — no more information available — left this review of my 10-minute play THE FERRYMAN AND THE THIEF:
“ A wonderful slice of greeco-roman mythology given to the modern audience. It manages to avoid the “Percy Jackson,” route, by not modernizing it and keeping true to the mythology while still being entertaining. A must read. ”
A reviewer named Isabella Castillo — don’t know more — left this review of my 10-minute play THE BEAUTIFUL OGRE AND OTHER FAIRY TALES on the New Play Exchange:
“This wonderful piece challenges the typical fairy tale stories that many of us have been fed in a fun, comedic way. The piece is a beautiful balance of being light-hearted and joyful, while also really compelling the audience to think about and challenge norms. ”
A reviewer named Angie Loveday — don’t know any more — left this review of my 10-minute play THE FERRYMAN AND THE THIEF on the New Play Exchange:
“ Well-thought story involving the basis of Greek afterlife. It leaves a nice message about the fear of the known and unknown, helping accept death. Albeit a dark ending as the child must pay his dues, but very appropriate within the story. ”
