    One thing I love about this play is that both characters can be any age, gender, ethnicity, etc. We read this aloud at our writers' group meeting, and it was fun to imagine how different the play would be with different dynamics between white/black, old/young, male/female, etc. If you saw it several times with different casts, the play would resonate wildly differently each time. Great set-up, dialogue, and a dream come true for most casting directors.
  • Best Mother-in-Law Ever

    We produced this play at Merely Players Presents as part of our Amplifest production. It was one of the most enjoyable shorts of the night, with four very enjoyable and funny characters. It's light, sweet and festive - like a tasty Chardonnay.
  • Witchy Harmony
    28 Feb. 2021
    This is a very funny short Halloween play about two witches who concoct a love potion to ensnare some hunky warlocks. However, an awkward human arrives, demanding a love potion to pursue the object of his affection. The witches are prepared to sell him some, except he then demands that it be gluten-free and vegan, which their eye-of-newt, etc, products are not. Hijinks ensue. Very funny, witty, and enjoyable.
  • The Satin Worshippers
    28 Feb. 2021
    One of the funniest Halloween short plays I've ever read. It is a laugh-a-minute riot as Dave and Buster attempt to summon Satan by enlisting the help of other Satan worshipers in the area. However, they do not know how to spell, so they end up summoning a local SATIN worshiper who teaches them the value of this very exotic fabric. It's a perfect short play for Halloween, or just about any time that you want to laugh.

    We loved this piece so much, we accepted it for OnStage Atlanta's "Things That Go Bump" series. It's a very funny and clever piece about two grave robbers, and the skeleton that just wants to be left alone. Perfect for Halloween!

    I really enjoyed reading this piece. The dialogue is crisp and tense. The suspense gets you, without ever seeing any actual bloodshed. Hearing about it is plenty. Added to the fact that everything in the play is ripped from the pages of history makes it even more powerful. It gave me chills.
  • Uncle Charlie Sings (a ten minute play)
    9 Jun. 2020
    I directed this play at Onstage Atlanta this past December. We had a lovely time. It's a cute play with several funny lines - but a very sweet and tender ending. Warning: There is a significant Christmastime spoiler alert in this one.
  • Slaying Holofernes
    13 Feb. 2020
    I saw this play at the Essential Theatre in Atlanta this past summer, and it was one of the best new plays I've seen all year. Deals with two women in different time periods, both dealing with sexual assault and the blind eye turned by those in power. One woman is Artemisia Gentileschi, a Renaissance painter who brought her rapist to trial in 1611. The other woman is Amanda Adams, a contemporary woman dealing with sexual assault in the workplace. Artemisia's story is ripped from the history books. Amanda's is fictional, but no less relevant. Read and produce this play!
  • That Fat Bitch Loved to Run Her Mouth
    31 Dec. 2019
    Upon first hearing the title, I immediately expected a misogynistic play that I would hate, but instead, it was the exact opposite. It is a sweet, endearing monologue about a deceased drag queen and the man who loved her. It is tragic, funny, and completely wonderful. Do not let the title fool you. Anyone with a heart will love this play!
  • Fallout
    11 Oct. 2019
    I saw this play at Onion Man Productions in Chamblee, GA in 2017. A powerful piece about two people trapped in a fallout shelter. Is there actually an emergency outside, or is it all in their imagination? This is a brilliant exploration of human psychology in an extreme situation. A tight, gripping drama.
