“My Summer as a Mermaid” at Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival, Mass.

May Paquette (Policewoman), Chris Lockheardt (Drunken Young Man), Karen Powers (Ashley Fairweather), Tom Powers (Manager), Diana Porter (Waitress) and Gordon Ellis (Pirate). Directed by Cinda Lavely.

“My Summer as a Mermaid” grew out of a family vacation to the beach. I’m not sure where the idea came from, but I had the vision of a fish restaurant with a huge aquarium — and a waitress swimming in it in a mermaid costume.

This was the January 2006 production at the Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival in Maynard, Mass.

A few months later, the script was produced at the Appetite Theatre in Chicago.

This is a ten-minute script.

“The Copyright Violation” at Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival, Mass.

We all know what happens if you violate copyright on the web; you likely get a “takedown” notice. But what happens if your tattoo is a copyright violation? That’s the theme of my dark 5-minute piece “The Copyright Violation,” produced at the Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival in Maynard, Mass. in January 2005.

The piece has since been published by Eldridge Plays and Musicals in the collection “24/7.”
