The Coronavirus One-Minute Play Festival produced 625 one-minute virus-related plays over six days in April — with a different batch of plays being performed each night, via Zoom, by a different theatre. My short piece PRIORITIES IN AISLE 14 came on the final night, April 17, and was performed by students at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.
In June, my one-minute play PICKING UP STARS was included in the annual Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in New York. Now, the video is available.
I had two pieces in the 2018 edition of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in Leeds, Great Britain: THREE POSSUMS AT THE BAR and MERMING. The former comes up at the 42:41 mark, the latter at 57:35.
I had three pieces in the 2017 edition of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in Leeds, Great Britain: TWO SQUIRRELS ON A POWERLINE, NOBODY EVER ASKS ME and THE SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT.
Here, at last, is the video from that show.
You can find photos from my three pieces here.

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!”
This year I had two pieces in the Gone in 60 Seconds festival of one-minute plays in New York.
THE BIGFOOT SIGHTING:
A MOMENT OF SILENCE:
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.
A professor is interviewed by a television reporter. While the prof debunks cryptozoology, a parade of mythical species parade behind him.

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.
