Poster from “The Rules Are The Rules Are The Rules” in Australia

Pop Culture Theatre poster

Here’s the awesome poster that Pop Culture Theatre in Melbourne, Australia has put together for my one-act THE RULES ARE THE RULES ARE THE RULES. It’s being entered in a series of festivals around the State of Victoria.

A farce set on an airplane. A male passenger has apparently died, and the flight attendants carry him up to first class, telling other passengers he’s simply drunk. The chief flight attendant, though, insists they go by the book and perform CPR and mouth-to-mouth on the hapless victim until the plane lands. The other flight attendants devise ways to skirt those rules, with increasing hilarity. That hilarity hits its peak when it turns out the man isn’t dead, after all. Cast: Five — four female, one male. Running time: Thirty minutes.
* Produced by the Castle Players, Lytchett Matravers Village Hall, near Poole, England. Feb. 18-29, 2011.
* Produced by Pop Culture Theatre, Melbourne, Australia, July-September, 2017.

Video: “Grown Attached” in London

KDC Theatre in London produced my short play GROWN ATTACHED in June as part of an evening of short, scary shows. Here’s the whole production. My piece starts at 22:50 and runs until 26:37.


A young boy got his head stuck between the railings of an old house.Now he’s a teenager, and he’s still stuck there — and his parents are moving out. Sad and funny at the same time. Cast: Two — one adult female, one juvenile male.

My short play A SMALL PROBLEM DOWN THE STREET was featured in this year’s Asphalt Jungle Shorts festival, an annual walking-tour festival in Kitchener, Ontario. Here’s how it went down, thanks to photos from director and producer Paddy Gillard-Bentley:

A conversation ensues about why the street is blocked.

I had three pieces in the 2017 edition of the Gone In 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in Leeds, Great Britain on May 13. Here are photos.

Cast photo.

“Two Squirrels On A Powerline.” Ignore the “Fincaster” on the screen. I’m from Fincastle. Even in English some things get lost in translation!

“The Science Fair Project.”

“Nobody Ever Asks Me.” Great product placement for the book about one-minute plays, which I am honored to be included in.
