Photos from shorts on Long Island

The Ghost Lamp

Four of my short scripts were produced in April by the Babylon Arts Council, Lindenhurst, New York: DEEP INTO OCTOBER, FIREBALLER, THE GHOST LAMP and THE UNIFORM. Three of those deal with baseball so I’m not sure from the photos which ones are which but this is definitely THE GHOST LAMP.

Video: Somewhere Tonight, The Last Washington Senators’ Game Plays On

Keith Thompson directed this script of mine at the Short Attention Span Festival in Chestertown, Maryland, June-July 2017.

SOMEWHERE TONIGHT, THE WASHINGTON SENATORS LAST GAME PLAYS ON
The last game the Washington Senators played – in 1971 – ended in a forfeit, when fans ran out onto the field and one of them stole first base. 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.
