THE PLAYS

 

I'm a big fan of David Ives' one act comedies like Sure Thing and Words, Words, Words. John Cariani's Almost, Maine is also one of my favorite plays. That should give you a good idea of what to expect when you see one of my plays. 

Love Is A Crocodile

A Romantic Comedy with Bite

Down-and-out and living in a homeless camp, Cyrus and Phoebe wager over whether or not true love exists in the world. They position themselves near a garden cafe and overhear the conversations of several couples in various stages of their relationships. They search for clues behind the nerd date, the blind date, the first date, the gamophobe, and all those

distractions that get in the way of love.

The Crow's Nest

A Murder Mystery Comedy 

The Crow family rents a cabin in the mountains for the Thanksgiving holiday. When the three Crow sisters arrive before their parents, they discover a guest book that chronicles the murder of one of the former guests. The sisters search the house and interview the wacky staff to try and unravel the mystery. Things get dicey when one of the suspects turns out to be a family member. Can the girls solve the crime before their parents arrive and the turkey's in the oven?

Phubbing

A One Act Comedy

John and Jennifer go on a breakfast date, but Jennifer only has eyes for her phone. 

We are all guilty of paying more attention to our phones sometimes than the people right next to us in real life. This play explores our increasing reliance on mobile technology and how important it is to live in the moment.

LOL

A One Act Comedy

 

Two young people with smartphones encounter a crisis and struggle to do the right thing. 

Although this play takes a humorous approach, it pokes fun at a growing serious problem in our society. We'd all rather watch or maybe video what's going on around us than step in and do something.
