Video and photos: “The Mermaid’s Tattoo” at The Garfield Center for the Arts in Maryland

The Garfield Center for the Arts in Chestertown, Maryland produced my 10-minute script “The Mermaid’s Tattoo” as part of the theatre’s Short Attention Span festival of 10-minute plays.

The festival ran June 22-July 1.

The script is related to “My Summer as a Mermaid,” which has been produced in Massachusetts (see those photos here) and Chicago, along with a staged reading in Roanoke, Virginia.

Here’s a promotional video that has part of the show, plus some still photos.

Scripts to be produced in Maryland and Oregon

Two theatres have notified me recently that they’ll be producing my work in upcoming months.

The Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre in Chestertown, Maryland will be producing my 10-minute script “The Mermaid’s Tattoo” in June. That was a theatre I had submitted to. The show dates are June 22-24 and June 29-July 1.

Meanwhile, the Post5 Theatre company in Portland, Oregon contacted me out of the blue, having found me via this very site! The e-mail from Post5 sent a brrrring through my phone just moments after my son, Keith, hit his first career home run in a high school game last week.

Post5 wanted to know if they could produce two of my 5-minute scripts as part of their intruigingly-titled program “Death/Sex: Portland,” which opens May 23 and runs through June 25. Specifically, they will said “Yvonne’s Worst Nightmare” and “Another Reason Why Yvonne Doesn’t Get Asked Out Very Much” would “fit perfectly” into their line-up of short pieces about either death or sex. Conveniently, those pieces deal with both.
