    Here’s a lovely two handed that evokes the power of love and how bound together lovers are. Sad and poignant, it will resonate with your audience. Appropriate for any age adult couple. Produce it. It’s a gem.
  • The Audition

    Friends and rivals face off in this intense 2 hander for mature women. This has some really great emotional turns for both. I just watched this livestream, and it’s entertaining and thought provoking.

    Here's a charming play that reminds us that love never dies, that we can find romance even in our twilight years. A great opportunity for 2 mature actors. It's funny and uplifting, and left me smiling.
  • "It's All About Me"
    17 Mar. 2021
    This powerful monologue is about being subsumed by relationship, and wanting to feel that sense of self again. I felt her pain, her longing for individuality, and her self awareness of her own peril. It is poignant, and has a quiet desperation that makes for a layered, rich exercise for the actor. I would love to see this at an audition.
  • James of Nazareth
    17 Mar. 2021
    The story of Jesus and his brother James, and mother Mary, and their relationship is retold from the perspective of James, with a real family, and real relationships, squabbles, misunderstandings, and disappointments. Seen through James' eyes, it casts a new and distinct perspective on this well known, oft told story. Not preachy or an attempt to sway, it is a great new take on a story we think we all know.
  • Inflatable Fools

    This is a real gem! A perfect example that hell is what you make of it, and in a different and totally relatable way. And it's funny while doing it. Audiences will love this.
  • FOR LOVE OR MONEY (from the MAD FOR MYSTERY Collection)
    6 Mar. 2021
    Here's a fun radio play with a nice twist. Vivian Lermond's small British town's sister sleuths are on the case, and are charming while doing it. Simple sound effects and a manageable cast size make this an easy and fun show to produce.

    What a beautiful and disturbing magical play. This story of love, guilt, and longing sweep us up and carry us through a daughter’s longing, guilt, and a Mother’s pain. I cried. A beautiful piece of writing. A great ensemble piece.

    What a fun story! This older couple talk to each other with the kind of banter that decades together brings. And the husband’s refusal to accept that he can no longer do things makes for a fun situation all around. A great festival piece that will leave the audience smiling.
  • Fireworks
    1 Feb. 2021
    This play is a tightly woven tale of that tension that arises when you are leaving a job and your fellow workers realize what they stand to lose. Add the tension of a fireworks display mixing with new discoveries going off like bombshells, this story sweeps us up and delivers with all the drama a good story can have. A great ensemble piece.
