Photos from “Svetlana’s First Christmas Away From Home” in West Virginia

My one-act SVETLANA’S FIRST CHRISTMAS AWAY FROM HOME is off to a roaring start. It was first produced last year by Victorian Players in Youngtown, Ohio and this year is being produced twice, by Lewis County Community Theatre in Weston, West Virginia and Red River Revue in Clarksville, Texas. Here are photos from West Virginia. Of note: The Svetlana in the script is a Ukrainian exchange student. By chance, Lewis County had an actual Ukrainian exchange student to play the titular role.

Lots of kids, lots of costumes.

Actors Workout Studio in North Hollywood, California is producing six Christmas one-acts, three of which are mine: THE ANGEL TREE, THE CHRISTMAS GOAT and DEATH BY POINSETTIA. My cousin, Itai Levin, attended on Dec. 8 and said there was a full-house and the shows were excellently cast.

Photos from “Death by Poinsettia” in Maryland

Silver Spring Stage in Silver Spring, Maryland (Washington suburbs) produced my one-act DEATH BY POINSETTIA August 18-20. Here are some photos.

A lonely woman tries to commit suicide at Christmas by eating a poinsettia, and broadcasting it via webcam.

She invited all her co-workers to a party, knowing they wouldn’t show up. But the nerdiest one did. He also knows something she doesn’t: Poinsettias aren’t really poisonous.

He also brought mistletoe. Love happens, reluctantly.

Theatre is that-a-way.

This was the third production of the script.

DEATH BY POINSETTIA
A lonely woman tries to kill herself at Christmas by eating a poinsettia, convinced the plant is poisonous. It’s not, though. A male co-worker shows up and a touching scene ensues. Cast: Two – one male, one female.
* Produced at Studio C, Hollywood, California, December 2015.
* Produced by Artists Exchange, Cranston, Rhode Island, August 2016.
* Produced by Silver Spring Stage, Silver Spring, Maryland, August 2017.

How bright? Well, the aliens out in deep space take notice of the unusual light coming from an otherwise obscure planet.
