The set for “57 Hours in the House of Culture” takes shape

Here's a more distant version. Notice the "blast" holes in the set, and the cut-outs of armed men on the balcony, intended to create a surreal feeling.

Here’s a more distant version. Notice the “blast” holes in the set, and the cut-outs of armed men on the balcony, intended to create a surreal feeling.

The set for my show about the Moscow theatre siege is taking shape at Studio Roanoke.

We don’t want to give away too many production secrets, but here are some photos to give you a taste of what’s to come.

The key thing: The goal of the production is to make you feel you’re there, at the House of Culture in Moscow when Chechen terrorists seized it in 2002 and held it for 57 hours. (Hence, the name of the show: “57 Hours in the House of Culture.”

With that in mind, we are trying to reproduce — in abstract form, at least — what the set at the theatre really looked like. Fortunately, it was a spare set for the musical “Nord-Ost.”

My show opens May 16 and runs through May 27 at Studio Roanoke.

A few close-ups:

Here's "the bomb" -- a replica of the homemade bomb that the terrorists set up in the ninth row of the theatre.

One-acts for high schools

Here’s a list of my one-acts that I’d deem suitable for high schools and community theatres. Almost all run about 25-30 minutes; designed to fit within the time limits of most one-act contests.

A few run longer, a few run shorter, as noted.

All can be produced with minimal staging.

All are available directly from me, except those that have been published, which are noted — and are available from their respective publishers.

Enjoy!
