Photos from “The Sandstorm” in Texas

My 10-minute play THE SANDSTORM was produced May 12, 2017 at Rockwall Heath High School in Heath, Texas.

The inspector interrogates a government official about discrepancies in his account.

They’re Martians. He’s siphoning off money to pay for a vault to store Martian artifacts after the planet’s oceans dry up and no life remains. They drink a toast of Martian water.

THE SANDSTORM
A dark vision from the last days of Mars. A local official in charge of building canals instead diverts some of the money to build an underground library to store his civilization’s artifacts because he knows Mars is doomed. Cast: Two non-gender.

Video: “The Sandstorm” in Chicago

Otherworld Theatre in Chicago produced my script THE SANDSTORM as part of the Paragon festival of science fiction plays on August 22. Here’s the video.

It was one of two of my scripts in the show; the other was THE BLACK MARKET OF MEMORIES.

“Black Market of Memories” and “The Sandstorm” to be produced in Chicago

I’m going to have a one-act and a ten-minute play produced in Chicago. (UPDATE: This will be August 22.)

Otherworld Theatre is holding its PARAGON Science Fiction and Fantasy Play Festival later this year. Today I get this word: “We are pleased to inform you that your plays Sandstorm and Black Market of Memories have been selected to be two of 40 plays performed in our upcoming PARAGON Science Fiction and Fantasy Play Festival. We were flooded with over 200 wonderfully creative play submissions and yours stood out among the very best.”

This will be the second production of THE BLACK MARKET OF MEMORIES:

THE BLACK MARKET OF MEMORIES
A young woman wakes up in a strange place — and discovers she’s had her memories stolen. Now that doctors have devised a way to transplant memories, there’s a lively market for memories — and a black market of stolen ones. The woman shares a recovery room with another woman, who specializes in “customizing” memories — doing things for rich donors that they’d never do themselves, but would like to remember doing. A dark, serious piece, which is carried primarily by the two women; the other characters appear only intermittently. Cast: Five — one male, two female, two non-gender. Running time: Twenty five minutes.
* Produced by End Times Productions, New York, N.Y., July 2011.

This will be the first production of THE SANDSTORM:

THE SANDSTORM
A dark vision from the last days of Mars. A local official in charge of building canals instead diverts some of the money to build an underground library to store his civilization’s artifacts because he knows Mars is doomed. Cast: Two non-gender. Running time: Seven or eight minutes.

So, that means in the span of just three days, I’ve scored productions in New York, Chicago and Minnesota.
