My short script THREE TREES TALKING was produced in the Asphalt Jungle Shorts walking-tour festival in Kitchener, Ontario in September 2015.

It was one of two scripts I had in the festival; THE WEAKEST FINGER was the other.

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.

You can find more about the festival, my previous productions there, and the group’s awesome publicity photos here.

Two of my short scripts to be produced in Ontario in September

The cast for this year's festival.

The cast for this year’s festival.

I’m once again thrilled to learn that my work will be included in ASPHALT JUNGLE SHORTS, an annual walking-tour theatre festival in Kitchener, Ontario. I’ve been in it before, and while I’ve never gotten there to see it, the photos and descriptions sound like a blast. Patrons sign up for a walking tour and along the route, live theatre breaks out in various locations.

This year, I’ve got two pieces in the festival:

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.
This was previously produced in England as part of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in 2013; more on that here.

THE WEAKEST FINGER
An adulterous couple meet in a restaurant, and the man points out to the woman that the weakest finger is the ring finger – all seductively, of course. Cast: Two — 1 male, 1 female. Running time: Five minutes.

The show dates are Sept. 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26th.

Here’s some of my previous work in Kitchener that will give you a feel for the event:
* Video of A NICE, RELAXING CUP OF TEA in 2009.
* Photos from REQUIEM FOR A BUZZARD in 2013.
* Photos from CAN I? IN 2014

This means this year I will have had my work produced in at least four countries — the U.S., Great Britain, Australia and now, Canada.

Two scripts to be produced in Canadian festival (and other news)

flushink
I have more productions to report.

I learned this week that two of my short scripts (five minutes or less) will be produced in June as part of the Asphalt Jungle Shorts festival in Kitchener, Ontario.

This is a unique festival, staged by Flush Ink Productions, in which all the productions are site-specific. I gather that patrons buy a ticket and then are escorted on a walking tour of downtown Kitchener, where they encounter pieces happening . . . on sidewalks . . . on park benches . . . in coffee shops . . .or in bars.

My two pieces in this festival (which happens June 6-15) are “Pandora and Schrodinger: What’s in The Box?” and “Requiem for a Buzzard.” I’m guessing the first one is a park bench piece and the other might be a sidewalk piece. (Descriptions are below.)

I love the idea for this festival; I only wish I could be there to see in action! I previously had a piece (“A Nice, Relaxing Cup of Tea”) in the 2009 installment.

Meanwhile, Falcon Radio Theatre at KSPU in Seattle continues to produce some of my work as radio plays.

On April 16, the station (affiliated with Seattle Pacific University) produced “Damsel Not in Distress” and “The Viking Funeral of Harold Olalfson.”

On April 23, it was “The Last Day of School.”

Here’s a description of each show, with a notation about previous productions (if any): Read the rest of this entry »
