  • I Said Run.
    18 Apr. 2019
    What a great short horror piece! It should resonate for anyone who has struggled with changing relationships or watching a close friend become someone unrecognizable. I would love to see this expand to a full-length! And I think teens would have a lot of fun performing it.
  • The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether
    22 Mar. 2019
    A quick foray into one of Poe's more disturbing pieces, The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether is quickly clever as a 10-minute immersive piece. This would be a fascinating introduction to an evening of macabre short plays.
  • Bound by Truth

    This is a fascinating play. The focus on More’s relationship with his daughter, Meg Roper, helps to address his complicated ideologies while revealing his humanity. Meg herself is an intriguing character, constantly torn between love for her father and passion for her own beliefs. Really interesting read!
  • Skin and Bone
    15 Aug. 2018
    I saw a fantastic production of "Skin and Bone" performed by the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble and I adored it! Witty, fast-paced, and delightfully macabre, it invokes "Arsenic and Old Lace" but with a twisted style that reminds me of Martin McDonagh. Read and enjoy!
  • SQUEEK! (copywright October 2015, MADELINE PUCCIONI)

    Wonderfully inventive! I had the pleasure of reading Baby Lulu at the Dramatists Guild Conference in 2018 and it was great fun. If you love absurd, dark, hilarious stories, you'll want to read this play!
