  • Motetz Dam
    27 Feb. 2023
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT podcast (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-13-motetz-dam/). Devon has crafted a delightful story with MOTETZ DAM, putting her own unique twists on the vampire mythos. In a tidy 10 minutes, we see the beginning spark of Jack and Lynn's heartwarming relationship, while also seeing the aftermath of Jack's tragic past relationship. A comedic and fun play that I'd love to see on the stage one day!

  • The Shelf on the Elf: A Brick Fistula Mystery
    24 Jan. 2023
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-44-the-shelf-on-the-elf-a-brick-fistula-mystery/). Busser has crafted a very comedic film-noir holiday tale and I was hooked from page one when I first read it. And I love how he cleverly uses Fistula's secretary as segues between scenes as she types out the case file of what's happening. Great Christmas themed play for any theatre looking for something more adult friendly during the holiday season!
  • Homo for Christmas
    20 Dec. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-43-homo-for-christmas/). This play is absolutely hilarious! Bavoso manages to give us a laugh line with every other sentence as this family remains in denial that their daughter has a girlfriend. While it may not be a family friendly script, this is a perfect holiday play for theatres out there that cater to mature audiences!
  • The Ultimate Christmas Question
    20 Dec. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-42-the-ultimate-christmas-question/). Rachel Feeny-Williams has captured a real life moment and written it into this hilarious play. I have overheard this same debate many times over the years and it was so fun to read script and Rachel's comedic take on this argument. Very relatable with great dialogue!
  • The Santa Thing
    20 Dec. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-41-the-santa-thing/).

  • The Bear - Beginnings
    20 Dec. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-40-the-bear-part-1-beginnings/). While stories of Jewish persecution can often times seem similar to each other, Plumridge has taken an original and new approach to this theme by writing it from a Teddy bear's perspective. A fantastic monologue that takes you on a roller coaster of a journey! And it turns out that this monologue is only the beginning of a series and I can't wait to see where the Bear goes next!
  • The Board
    20 Dec. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-39-the-board/). A tale about the old teaching the new. What I love most about this piece is Mansfield's way with dialogue and how he presented a tough but thoughtful lesson in the story while maintaining a mutual respect between the vets and the young soldier. A fantastic and tidy story!

  • Off Center
    27 Sep. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT (https://www.podpage.com/gather-by-the-ghost-light/ep-36-off-center/). A heart-tugging story with comedic moments peppered in. Jacquelyn gives us the character Melody to help remind us all to never let our passion subside, but to be creative and do our damn art! This is a wonderfully written piece and also a great opportunity for an older actress.
