    I produced an audio play version of this script on the Gather by the Ghost Light radio theater podcast after seeing it on stage at SUNY Brockport. MacGregor has a talent for dark humor and most people who have worked in an office environment can relate to this script. The exchange between characters is well structured and seeing how they deal with the lunch thief is extremely entertaining. Highly recommended!
  • Beatrix Potter Must Die!
    20 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT after seeing it performed at SUNY Brockport. This play is such a delightful alternative take on the origin of Beatrix Potter's "The Tale of Peter Rabbit". Gabridge ties everything together in such a clever and humorous way. An outstanding script suitable for all ages to enjoy!
  • Doctors and Lawyers (1st Edition Rules)
    19 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio version of this script on my radio theater podcast Gather by the Ghost Light after seeing it on stage in Orlando, FL. This play is absolutely hilarious and Strauss does an excellent job of throwing the comedy right into your face. These D&D style fantasy characters experiencing a mundane human world is presented in such a way that it makes normal business jobs sound exciting, which Strauss uses to build the humor. A well written script and highly recommended!
  • Monsters Beyond the Midnight Zone
    18 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the Gather by the Ghost Light radio theater podcast. Partain has written a story that keeps the audience on the edge of it's seat as the two scientists try to think their way out of the situation they are in. A unique quality of this play is that it is meant to take place in total darkness, forcing the audience to rely mostly on the sounds and dialogue they hear to get a sense of the action rather than seeing the action itself. An exceptional script!
  • BACKSEAT DRIVER
    14 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio version of this play on the Gather by the Ghost Light podcast. Backseat Driver is a touching story about protecting your friendships and building new ones. When Tina and Darcy first connect, playwright Scott Mullen makes it unpredictable on what direction the story is going to take, but the reveals along the way keep you interested. This is such a lovely dialogue driven script that is cleverly written!
  • Remembered

    I produced an audio version of this play on the radio theater podcast GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT. As someone who loves to journey through nostalgia in my own life, this play hits me in all the right spots. And the genuine human connection between Doris and Peter is a beautiful interaction. These two characters are written so honestly and Mabey brings them to life in a remarkable way. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to produce a moving piece that will hit you right in the feels.
  • The Deal - 10 Minute Play
    10 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the radio theater podcast Gather by the Ghost Light. Could your soul be so tarnished that even the devil himself turns you away? Kaminski tells a richly detailed story with the perfect Louisiana backdrop. As sinister deals go, it's been done often in storytelling, but he keeps things fresh with a bit of a twist. Very well written script and Kaminski displays excellent skill in shifting power from one character to the next. Outstanding!
  • North Pole Noir
    6 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio version of this play on my radio theater podcast Gather by the Ghost Light. It is not only a delightful read but also a fun script to produce! Gabridge has taken all the holiday classic Rankin-Bass characters and intertwined them into a mysterious noir style story giving us an edgier alternate course of events. It is wonderfully crafted with scenes connected in all the right ways and has clever internal narration from the protagonist Harvey the Elf.
  • It's A Wonderful Satan
    5 Jan. 2022
    I produced an audio version of this play on my radio theater podcast Gather by the Ghost Light. John Mabey has constructed a hilarious take on the classic holiday film "It's a Wonderful Life" showing that even the most eviliest of the evil get depressed sometimes. Wonderfully written piece!
  • Playing With Fired
    30 Dec. 2021
    I produced an audio play version of this script on the Gather by the Ghost Light radio theater podcast. It's a charming non-traditional holiday story with clever reveals along the way. The structure and pacing of the conversation between Mr O'Brien and Sam provide a nice set up that keeps you guessing how it will all play out, and then Hayet nails the ending with a perfect callback.
