Plays

  • TRAIN
    Sarah, an independent BLIND female, recalls her near-death experience in the New York City subway.
    (Based on actually witnessed events.)
  • A CIVIL WAR
    A CIVIL WAR is a two-character, darkly-comic tragedy (with song) that brings together diametrically opposed Adam and Evelyn for a (seemingly) random Tinder hook-up. The encounter is smack dab in the midst of a viral pandemic AND an increasing violent protest, where each are clearly aligned on opposite sides. But can awakened memories of more tender times and rekindled feelings of "first love"...
    A CIVIL WAR is a two-character, darkly-comic tragedy (with song) that brings together diametrically opposed Adam and Evelyn for a (seemingly) random Tinder hook-up. The encounter is smack dab in the midst of a viral pandemic AND an increasing violent protest, where each are clearly aligned on opposite sides. But can awakened memories of more tender times and rekindled feelings of "first love" bring the polarized couple together? What happens when love takes over, armor is dropped and then a tragedy, perhaps of one's own making, strikes?
  • Not Me
    Celia has sought help from Psychiatrist Dr. Fraued (PLEASE pronounce it "Frowd") to help her find her friend's lost head. She can't find it anywhere.
  • Mashed Potatoes
    Home-made versus Instant Mashed Potatoes; craving a "real" guy.
  • Cuddle Time
    In an apocalyptic future, Martha valiantly care for her loyal companion, Sweetie,
    as resources such as food, water and breathable air rapidly diminish. Martha struggles to meet
    Sweetie’s demands for basic needs and playtime while dealing with the news of a friend’s death threatens to push Martha beyond Sweetie's reach.
  • White Ice
    The morning after the 2016 Presidential Election, a very-well-put-together blonde, white woman interviews for a position with I.C.E., but what is her true identity and reasons for being there, and why does her interviewer look so familiar?
  • Maudee Dear
    Outside a trailer in the woods of Oregon, Maudee, having been abandoned by her husband for a younger woman, rescues “babies” while neglecting and abusing her own until a mysterious man, Aaron G. Nome comes to investigate.

    Inspired by Euripides’ “Medea.”
  • FLIGHT PLAN
    Celia’s only friend has lost her head. Literally. So what is Celia dragging around in her duffle bag? James can’t eat anything without a certain condiment which, of course, he is not allowed. His only real nourishment comes from his passion for music and Wikipedia. Bernard keeps losing his wife and his own mind. Arianna struggles to find a reason to live. On the “Sunnyland Sanctuary” mental ward for low/no...
    Celia’s only friend has lost her head. Literally. So what is Celia dragging around in her duffle bag? James can’t eat anything without a certain condiment which, of course, he is not allowed. His only real nourishment comes from his passion for music and Wikipedia. Bernard keeps losing his wife and his own mind. Arianna struggles to find a reason to live. On the “Sunnyland Sanctuary” mental ward for low/no income patients, Nurse Hammer and Dr. Fraued (please pronounce it “Frowd”) have all the skills and resources to make their patients’ healing and recovery as insane (and unlikely?) as possible.

    (NOTE: The most recent draft of FLIGHT PLAN is available by request. A new draft is in the works!)
