Upcoming reading: SAY GOODBYE TO HOLLYWOOD at the Twilight Cafe

My 10-minute play Say Goodbye to Hollywood will be part of the Twilight Cafe in late June. The play is an affectionate satire on Palm Springs and the movie business.

The Twilight Cafe is an evening of readings of works by members of the CVRep Writers Group which is affiliated with the Conservatory of Coachella Valley Repertory Theatre in Rancho Mirage, California. The Cafe will be held Saturday, June 30, 2018 on CVRep’s main stage and will include works by nine of our members. Tickets are available thru the box office. www.cvrep.org

CRUSADE now on NPX

I have posted my new full-length play Crusade to the New Play Exchange. https://newplayexhange.org

Crusade recreates the traditional war drama in a new way with an urgently relevant message for today.

It is the near future. Civil war rages between Christian fundamentalists who control the federal government and rebellious U.S. military units still loyal to the Constitution. The play follows the fate of an Army patrol caught up in this conflict. Stylistically, Crusade seeks to heighten a typically realistic form through the use of sound, lighting, language, and physical action in a “total theatre” effort to confront the audience with the reality of violence and the danger of extremism.

Prize Winner

I am very pleased to announce my play Quarantine was awarded Third Place in the 2017 One-Act Playwriting Competition at the Little Theatre of Alexandria in Northern Virginia.

In notifying me, the head of the competition said: “Out of 90+ plays, yours was the 3rd rated highest in our competition. People loved your show. They thought it was very realistic, and they loved the strong male characters…People devoured your show, and many offered to try out for it, they loved it so much….It was very compelling, and kept everyone engaged. You should be proud of your accomplishments and know that you were the “cream of the crop.”

My deep thanks to LTA for this recognition.

If interested in Quarantine, see my post below; it’s also available through New Play Exchange.
