James Eychaner

After a career in technical writing, customer service, nonprofit management, and state government, I'm a new playwright. I am published in Smith & Kraus' Best Ten Minute Plays of 2019. I have been read by South Puget Sound Community College and staged by the Seattle Playwrights Salon. When I am not writing, I like to travel. I am a Member of the Dramatists Guild.

Plays

  • One Fine All Hallows Eve
    A widower is confronted by a policewoman for being in a cemetery after closing on Halloween. The widower is keeping a promise to his late wife. The policewoman has a rare opportunity to show compassion.
  • Three Guys Talk Football
    An Englishman, an Australian, and an American take a break over beer and talk football. The problem is each one is talking about a different game.
  • The Old Man Goes to the Ballet
    Anthony is an older father of a son who dances ballet. Anthony volunteers to perform in The Nutcracker -- the way most dads would volunteer to coach a son's baseball team. His son resents the intrusion, but Anthony rediscovers his own love of dance. Structure based on Campbell's Hero's Journey.
