“Two Squirrels On A Powerline.” Ignore the “Fincaster” on the screen. I’m from Fincastle. Even in English some things get lost in translation!

“The Science Fair Project.”

“Nobody Ever Asks Me.” Great product placement for the book about one-minute plays, which I am honored to be included in.

Another view. The creature in black is likely the Loch Ness monster.

My one-act script THE BIGFOOT SIGHTING was produced in New York June 9-11 as part of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays.

Two short pieces to be produced in New York festival

Two of my short scripts will be produced in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays, which will be held June 9-11 at Brooklyn College in New York.

The scripts are the comedy THE BIGFOOT SIGHTING and the more somber A MOMENT OF SILENCE.

If you’re counting, and I am, that means already this year I’ve had (or soon will have) productions in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. I’ve been fortunate to have had scripts in this festival for several years running now.

Curiously, both of my scripts accepted this year deal with television news:

THE BIGFOOT SIGHTING
A TV reporter interviews a professor, who doubts the existence of Bigfoot, even though one is jumping around all over the stage. Cast: Three or more – one male, two or more non-gender.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE
A minister presides over a moment of silence following some tragedy. Except there is no silence, because of all the TV news crews talking. Cast: Four, all non-gender.

You can find the full list of scripts in this year’s festival here.

So far in 2016:

Video from my two pieces in this year’s Gi60 Festival in New York

In June, I had two short pieces in the annual Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in New York. It’s actually an international festival; I also had two pieces in the British leg of the festival in May. I’m still waiting on the video from that show, but the video from the New York festival has now been posted.

Here is: THERE ARE NO CELLPHONES IN SHAKESPEARE and AN UNEXPECTED CHEESE PARTY:
