At long last, I have video from the 2015 production of my one-act THE ONE-WORD MACBETH by Pop Culture Theatre of Melbourne, Australia. The show –and the actresses who performed it — won a bunch of award that year in the Victorian Drama League competition. You can find a full list here.
Pop Culture also produced my one-act THE RULES ARE THE RULES ARE THE RULES in the 2017 Victorian Drama League season. Madeline Hardie, who starred here as Macbeth, was in that one, as well.
Meanwhile, THE ONE-WORD MACBETH has gone on to be published by Brooklyn Publishers.

SOMEWHERE TONIGHT, THE WASHINGTON SENATORS LAST GAME PLAYS ON

Now, on the night before a new Washington baseball team takes the field in 2005, the man who stole that base is trying to return it, and gets arrested. He tries to explain to the cop why the base is haunted. Cast: Two males.
