Poster from “Gone In 60 Seconds” festival in UK

My name, well, maybe not up in lights but at least the fine print.

I have three pieces in this year’s UK edition of the Gone In 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays. Here are the show posters. My three pieces are NOBODY EVER ASKS ME, THE SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT and TWO SQUIRRELS ON A POWERLINE.

My one-minute play A CHALKBOARD SCRIBBLED IN BLOOD was performed Nov. 6-9 by Rabbit’s Riot Theatre in Ireland, with three shows in Slingo and one in Manorhamilton.

Here’s George Hynes in action in my very dark piece inspired by the Sandy Hook school shooting.

The theatre sent this word: “It went fantastic! Got amazing audience feedback! Thank you for writing such a moving piece!”

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:

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.

FIREBALLER deals with the curious relationship between God, dinosaurs . . . and a fast ball.
