Review for ‘The One-Word Christmas Carol’

Blank Conversations Theatre in New Mexico left this review of my play THE ONE-WORD CHRISTMAS CAROL on the New Play Exchange:

“ This is a really fun piece. Perfectly chaotic and versatile. We produced a Youtube production and, due to COVID, decided to do it with one actor and a greenscreen! The piece lends itself to whatever way you want to produce it which is perfect for a ten minute holiday play. ”

Here’s that video.

Logo for ‘Miss Mitchell’s Comet’

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.

Review: ‘Death By Poinsettia’

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! ”

Review: ‘The Ferryman and The Thief’

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. ”

Review: ‘The Beautiful Ogre and Other Fairy Tales’

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. ”

Review: ‘The Ferryman and The Thief’

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. ”

Review: ‘The Contact Lens’

John Kelly, emeritus professor of theatre at Elmira College in Elmira, New York, has posted this review of my 10-minute play THE CONTACT LENS on the New Play Exchange:

“ A wonderfully farcical short about a woman, her lost contact lens, and oh, so much more. To say more would be… unfair. Let’s just say things get… very interesting! Give this fine bit of fun and foolery a good look! Bravo!”
