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” 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.
