Photos (and video!) from Synergy Ensemble Theater on Long Island

Synergy Ensemble Theater on Long Island performed two of my one-minute scripts on July 18 as part of an event to show off the group’s talent to the community. Synergy performed two of my baseball pieces — DEEP INTO OCTOBER and FIREBALLER.

Two more one-minute plays to be produced in New York

Two more of my one-minute plays will be produced in New York.

Synergy Ensemble Theater will be producing two baseball-themed shorts — DEEP INTO OCTOBER and FIREBALLER — on July 18 at Geiger Park in Deer Park on Long Island.

As I understand it, the theater has found a new home and, to show its gratitude to its new host, is staging an evening of short works to show of its performers. It’s always good to be produced, but especially so when this helps give a theatre new life.

DEEP INTO OCTOBER has been produced twice before, both times in New York — there’s video of this production in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival in 2011 and photos from this benefit for hurricane victims  in 2012.

So far in 2015: Read the rest of this entry »

In December, two of my short baseball pieces were performed at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City in a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims in The Rockaways section of Brooklyn.

Here are photos from one of those pieces, “Deep Into October.”

Mickey Ryan reprised his role from when this piece was originally performed in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival in New York in 2011. You can find video of that performance here.

And here’s another photo of Mickey: Read the rest of this entry »

Two short pieces to be produced in New York Dec. 18

RockawayPOSTERSMALL

I will soon have something in common with Mick Jagger.

And Kanye West.

And Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl and a lot of other famous people.

We’re all involved in benefit gigs in New York to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims in the Rockaways neighborhood of New York.

Mick, Kanye and many others are all performing a benefit concert for at Madison Square Garden — the 12-12-12 concert.

Meanwhile, I have two short pieces being produced as part of “Rockaway,” a day of theatre produced by the Barefoot Theatre Company at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan on Dec. 18.

Both of my pieces deal with baseball: “The Uniform” and “Deep Into October” were both previously produced at the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in New York  (the links take you to video).  “The Uniform” was produced in June 2012; “Deep Into October” in June 2011.

I am indebted to Rose Bonczek of Brooklyn College, who helped make this happen, and to Francisco Solorzano, artistic director of Barefoot.

Here’s the full list of playwrights taking part (a list which is growing, by the way): Read the rest of this entry »
