Poster for “My Summer as a Mermaid” at Studio Roanoke

I had four short pieces done at Studio Roanoke on August 22, 2010 as part of its Guerrilla Playhouse program.

The headline piece was “My Summer as a Mermaid,” which had been previously produced in Massachusetts and Chicago.

Other pieces were:
* “Captain Funhouse and His Rollicking, Frolicking Adventures Gang”
* “Love Match”
* “What I Learned in Paraguay”

Here’s the poster for the show.

The musical guest, Chris Shepard, also performed a song that he and I co-wrote: “Unemployed Gods,” the theme song of an as-yet-unproduced script by the same name.

“My Summer as a Mermaid” at Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival, Mass.

May Paquette (Policewoman), Chris Lockheardt (Drunken Young Man), Karen Powers (Ashley Fairweather), Tom Powers (Manager), Diana Porter (Waitress) and Gordon Ellis (Pirate). Directed by Cinda Lavely.

“My Summer as a Mermaid” grew out of a family vacation to the beach. I’m not sure where the idea came from, but I had the vision of a fish restaurant with a huge aquarium — and a waitress swimming in it in a mermaid costume.

This was the January 2006 production at the Acme Theatre New Works Winter Festival in Maynard, Mass.

A few months later, the script was produced at the Appetite Theatre in Chicago.

This is a ten-minute script.
