“The Picture Window” wins first place in North Carolina

Just got word that my play THE PICTURE WINDOW won first play at the recent festival of ten-minute plays held by The Storefront Theatre in Waxhaw, North Carolina. The judging was done by a panel of judges.

That was the fourth time the script was on stage:

THE PICTURE WINDOW
An old woman’s front window is shattered by a baseball. For her, it’s time to go get the instructions her late husband left her. There’s something special waiting for the kid who could hit a baseball that far. A poignant story about old age and regrets – and baseball. Cast: Three – one male two females.
* Produced at North Park Playwright’s Festival, San Diego, California, Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2016.
* Staged reading at Readers Repertory Theatre, Los Angeles, California, January 25, 2017.
* Produced at Greenbrier Valley Theatre, Lewisburg, West Virginia, Feb. 2-4, 2017.
* Staged reading at Storefront Theatre, Waxhaw, North Carolina, March 4-5, 2017.

Photos of “The Picture Window” in San Diego

My 10-minute play THE PICTURE WINDOW was produced Sept. 30, Oct. 1-2, 2016 in the North Park Playwrights Festival in San Diego. Here are three photos:

Those are Bert's ashes scattered on the floor. The urn containing them was knocked to the floor by a baseball that came crashing through the window.

Bert left instructions that whoever was the first to knock a baseball through the picture window would win a scholarship to his alma mater.
