My short script THREE TREES TALKING was produced in the Asphalt Jungle Shorts walking-tour festival in Kitchener, Ontario in September 2015.

It was one of two scripts I had in the festival; THE WEAKEST FINGER was the other.

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.

You can find more about the festival, my previous productions there, and the group’s awesome publicity photos here.

Two of my short scripts to be produced in Ontario in September

The cast for this year's festival.

The cast for this year’s festival.

I’m once again thrilled to learn that my work will be included in ASPHALT JUNGLE SHORTS, an annual walking-tour theatre festival in Kitchener, Ontario. I’ve been in it before, and while I’ve never gotten there to see it, the photos and descriptions sound like a blast. Patrons sign up for a walking tour and along the route, live theatre breaks out in various locations.

This year, I’ve got two pieces in the festival:

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.
This was previously produced in England as part of the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in 2013; more on that here.

THE WEAKEST FINGER
An adulterous couple meet in a restaurant, and the man points out to the woman that the weakest finger is the ring finger – all seductively, of course. Cast: Two — 1 male, 1 female. Running time: Five minutes.

The show dates are Sept. 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26th.

Here’s some of my previous work in Kitchener that will give you a feel for the event:
* Video of A NICE, RELAXING CUP OF TEA in 2009.
* Photos from REQUIEM FOR A BUZZARD in 2013.
* Photos from CAN I? IN 2014

This means this year I will have had my work produced in at least four countries — the U.S., Great Britain, Australia and now, Canada.

Three scripts to be produced in the Gone in 60 Seconds Festival, UK edition

gi60

I will have three scripts produced next month in the U.K. edition of the “Gone in 60 Seconds” Festival of one-minute plays.

I already have one script slated for the U.S. version, which will be June 7-8 at Brooklyn College in New York. That script is “Fishing for Men.”

The U.K. version will be June 8 at the Viaduct Theatre, Dean Clough, Halifax, Great Britain.

Here are the three scripts that will be done:

THIS IS THE CAPTAIN SPEAKING
An airline pilot addresses his passengers, warning them of some danger ahead. Is he suicidal? Cast: One male.

THREE TREES TALKING
Three trees contemplate the question: If they were human, what kind of human would be they? Cast: Three, non-gender. Running time: One minute.

THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
A man tries to compliment his girlfriend and promptly gets in in trouble, and his clarifications only make the matter worse. Cast: One male, one female. Running time: One minute.

“This is the Captain Speaking” and “The Whole Wide World” have previously been done as staged readings at No Shame Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia.
