Plays

  • What to Throw Out
    Allison, a college professor, has to move out of her apartment, but she can’t seem to get it together to sort through, throw away and pack her clutter. She calls in Mandy, a mover, who helps Allison throw away what she no longer needs, and get her to the next place. Allison falls in love with Mandy, who is also in a place where she can’t move.

The one-act play (running time, 45 min) takes place in the small Southern town where Wallace (Stuckey) and Margarita (Ferro) grew up, and where Stuckey still lives. When Ferro returns to take care of her ailing mother, the two find themselves remembering...
    From high school to middle age, Ferro and Stuckey have never been able to get it right...or get over each other. Echoes of the past resonate in the present. The one-act play (running time, 45 min) takes place in the small Southern town where Wallace (Stuckey) and Margarita (Ferro) grew up, and where Stuckey still lives. When Ferro returns to take care of her ailing mother, the two find themselves remembering who they were, and what they nearly had. The actors play themselves as both teens and adults.

    Originally produced by Emerging Artists Theatre at FrigidNY, also produced by EAT at the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival (Ireland). Note: the play does not have any LGBT characters in it. It was invited to the IDGTF because of its universal themes and because they like my work.

    Nominated for Best Short Play, NY Innovative Theatre Awards; Nominated for the Oscar Wilde Award for Writing, IDGTF.
