I HAVE BEEN WRITING PLAYS FOR OVER TEN YEARS AND I RECENTLY GRADUATED WITH A MASTERS DEGREE IN PLAYWRITING AT LESLEY UNIVERSITY. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF WRITING TEN PLAYS ABOUT AMERICA, ONE FOR TEN DECADES--JUST FINISHED THE FORTH. I BELIEVE, AND I WRITE WITH THE IDEA THAT PLAYS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. I SEEK TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Plays

  • Speed Dating
    Two senior citizens meet at a speed dating event at the local Holiday Inn. The first 80% of the play is extremely funny banter, and it then moves into a tender, heartwarming ending. This is a short play, around 15 minutes
  • The Last Entrepreneur
    This is the story of a small business owner trying to save his company in the throes of the great recession, 2009. It is a story of his battle to fight out-sourcing, gentrification. It is a story about racism, father and sons and their legacies. Stan, the main character, is the embodiment of an entrepreneur, both its courage and its flaws.
  • FAMILY DINNER
    THREE GENERATIONS OF SOLDIERS--WORLD WAR II, VIETNAM, AND IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN--COME TOGETHER FOR A FAMILY DINNER. IT IS A STORY ABOUT HOW EACH DEALS WITH THE TRAUMA OF WAR AND THE TRAUMA OF THE FAMILY HISTORY. IT IS ALSO A STORY ABOUT THE DECISIONS THAT PUT SOLDIERS IN WARS BASED ON LIES.
