My 10-minute play TROUBLESHOOTING — which previously won an award in Australia that I couldn’t accept — was produced by South Walton High School in South Walton, Florida in February. The full photo gallery is here.
Director: Carissa Groves
The show is set up to be gender-neutral. In Australia it was done with two women. Here the characters were Marie, the office worker, played by Molly Turner, and Tyler, the IT help desk, by Spencer Eichberger.

Review: ‘Veronica’s Dolls’ called ‘most innovative and creative’
Posted by Dwayne Yancey in News, Photos, Productions, Reviews on March 19, 2019
My short one-act VERONICA’S DOLLS was performed as a staged reading on March 10 in New York at the Dramatist’s Guild Theatre as part of a festival of short plays about mental health that was produced by Piccione Arts. The event got a nice review in Five-Star Arts Journal.
Here’s what it said about VERONICA’S DOLLS:
“Veronica’s Dolls” A teenagers dolls come to life in a desperate effort to save her life after she attempts suicide. Starring, LOUISE HELLER, EMMA ROMEO, NICK CAPRIOTTI, GEMIA FOO, TRAVIS MARTIN. “Veronica’s Dolls” was most innovative and creative what with its conveyance of human feelings vis-a-vis inanimate objects. This piece happily was reminiscent of the popular Twilight Zone episode: “Five Characters in Search of an Exit”. EMMA ROMEO gave a nice characterization while NICK CAPRIOTTI was well in command of his lines and performance.

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.
