Artistic Statement

My favorite New Yorker cartoon has two guys standing in front of the marquee of a multiplex cinema, with one pointing to the list of movies. He's saying "Not another movie about a straight couple in love. I'm tired of extrapolating". I, too, became tired of extrapolating and, in 2004, began writing plays with gay characters and themes. I have, since, written twelve such plays, eleven of which have been produced, in a total of twenty-one productions and six staged readings, from coast to coast and internationally. I have thoroughly enjoyed telling stories from the wealth of our gay experience, to both straight and gay audiences. When I run out of those stories, I guess I can go on to something else.
