PLAYHOUSE was recently selected as a semi-finalist by the National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. The script is currently being considered by professional companies in Chicago and New York.
HURRY SLOWLY was presented this past January in a staged reading at Chicago Dramatists. Richard Shavzin directed. The cast included Jurgen Hooper as Casey, Chuck Stransky as Jack, Judy Blue as Iris, and Michelle Schupe as Meg. The play is now being considered by theaters in Chicago, New York and Memphis.
CRY UNCLE, a comedy, is still in development and will be performed at readings in the coming year. While most of my plays are set in Chicago, CRY UNCLE takes place in a small Florida town in 1995.
More short stories will be appearing on the site soon, both published and unpublished. I hope you enjoy reading the play scenes and the stories. If you wish to read the full script of a play , please contact me here.
