PLAYS (Full Length)

"Cutting the Leash"

A light-hearted mystery, this play can be performed as either a long one-act, or two shorter acts.

 

Liam Chewt is a teacher who finds himself recently deceased. The first person he encounters at “the wait station” is his (also deceased) 4th grade teacher, Delilah Franberry. Mrs. Franberry tells Liam that, in order to get into heaven, he has 24 hours to solve his own murder. So Liam, with the help to two “Hell’s Angels,” Nuts and Bolts, becomes a sleuth as he tries to uncover his own murderer. The suspect list includes everyone from Sammy Maestro and Jimmy Uncolukas, the school thugs, to Liam’s own daughter, Elayne, to even Mrs. Franberry herself! A fun, yet poignant work that is perfect for teenage performers and Little Theaters, this play examines topics such as family relationships, finding the right friends, and treasuring life while we’re living it. Approx. 70 minutes. 

PLAYS (Short)

We are introduced to Rosie, an abandoned teddy bear.  She talks of the Little Girl who loves her, and the not-so-nice Bigger Lady, whose both verbal and physical abuse causes the Little Girl to seek companionship in her only friend, her teddy bear with the rose on her belly.  So why is Rosie on the side of the road?

 
 

It’s graduation day, and Marvin and Julius are expressing their anxiety and excitement about going their separate ways.  There is a twist, however: Marvin and Julius are guinea pigs!  An “odd couple” style comedy for all ages!

Two twenty-somethings from opposite sides of the tracks meet in a graveyard to discover that they have much more in common than their age ranges.  Their conversation, spoken one word at a time, gives them both a glimpse into each other’s “history.”  Winner of the 2003 Sonoma County Rep’s New Drama Works Scripts Competition. 

We visit the world of "the guy chairs": those areas in the shopping malls made up of chairs in various formations for men to sit in while their significant others are shopping forever and ever. In this world, the men don't just sit in the chairs, they become the chairs themselves! The only escape from their "mall incarceration" is to be sat on and subsequently replaced by another guy. This comedy is for every man who has ever had to wait for his shopper in the mall

Evelyn goes to the dentist in order to ask the dentist's son out on a date, but first she has to get past the dentist's mother in the waiting room. She finally does, and miraculously, not only does the dentist understand what Evelyn is saying while she is having a tooth filled, the dentist agrees to ask her son on Evelyn's behalf. 

Two artistic directors negotiate over productions for their respective theaters.  When they discover that they are planning the same shows, they use a variety of methods to decide who will produce each work.  My most produced un-published play.  (Contains mature language.)
