Plays

  • Her Vincent Sky
    A full length drama for three woman play based on the last two years of Vincent Van Gogh's life. Set between the days at the famous Yellow House with Paul Gauguin to the mysterious death by gunshot while in the company of Dr Gachet, this story challenges the idea that artists are bound by reality.
    Written in 2020. This play has not been staged.
  • (The Things That Are Said When You're Not) In The Room
    A full length comedy-drama that questions the role of the museum and tradition in art. Visitors to a gallery discuss philosophy, death and what it means to be normal. When they're not in the room, the art has something to say about them too.
    An early draft was presented as a workshop reading at the Thousand Islands Film & Stage studio in 2018.
  • Who Killed the Curator
    A comedy that takes place in a contemporary art gallery in the early 2000s. Curators fight for funding, artists bloat for attention and one stray art buyer can't take home a photograph in a gallery where nothing is for sale.
    Winner of the 2008 Evan Hughes Award One Act contest in Niagara Falls, Canada.

This 16 page script can be a 15 minute - 40 minute...
