My Christmas one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA is on a roll. It’s now been produced three times, with both a production in Hollywood, California and a staged reading in Roanoke, Virginia in December — to bring the total to five.

Here’s the poster for the Roanoke reading, which will be directed by Lauren Ellis and will star Michael Mansfield and Amanda Mansfield.

Photos from “Death by Poinsettia” in Hollywood

Director Edgar Pablos shares these photos from the production of my one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA, which is playing through December 14 at Studio C in Hollywood, California.

It’s a comedy about a lonely woman who decides to commit suicide by eating a poinsettia — while broadcasting this on a webcam. Only two problems: She invites a bunch of people, knowing none of them will show up. Except one of them does — an equally lonely co-worker she barely knows. Oh, and it turns out poinsettias really aren’t fatal anyway.

My one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA is being produced by Studio C Artists in Hollywood as part of a holiday show.

Studio C said they were looking for very “modern” Christmas plays; this is mine. The show opens November 13 and continues most Fridays and Saturdays through December 14. Full list of show dates here.

“Death by Poinsettia” to be produced in Hollywood

Got word today that my short Christmas one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA will be produced in Hollywood by Studio C Artists this November and December.

It’s one of three one-acts in the theatre’s holiday show.

Performance dates are:

Friday, November 13th
Saturday, November 14th
Friday, November 20th
Saturday, November 21st
Friday, December 4th
Saturday, December 5th
Friday, December 11th
Saturday, December 12th

I seem to recall that Studio C’s call for submissions was looking for short holiday scripts that were cool, hip and could be done by 20-somethings. Mine fits!

DEATH BY POINSETTIA
A lonely woman tries to kill herself at Christmas by eating a poinsettia, convinced the plant is poisonous. It’s not, though. A male co-worker shows up and a touching scene ensues. Cast: Two – one male, one female.
