A little progress report.

So I realized I don't have a list anywhere of all the plays I've completed so far. Some of these plays have been staged in one way or another. Some I'm wildly submitting to things at the moment. If any of them seem in any way interesting to you please give me a holla' at to read the full thing or just chat a bit.

Plastic People in Waiting
1 Act Play. 45 minutes. 6 F. 2 M.
Dr. Cohen’s secretary is dead. His office is a mess. Six zany characters vie for one last chance to meet the Dr before he jets off to Brazil. Who makes the cut?

The Face Of
1 Act Play. 45 minutes. 2 Females. 1 Male.
Borrowing a movie star’s face seemed like a great career move for Alice Whitaker. Unfortunately, even the prettiest faces have ugly stories.

In a Relationship
Solo Show/ Short. 25 minutes. 1 F.
Boy meets girl. Boy asks girl to be in a relationship. Girl internet stalks boy. It’s complicated.

Tell Tale Text
Short. 15 minutes. 1 F. 3 M.
A harrowing tale of a phone that wouldn’t silence and a man driven mad by the sound.

Friends & Monsters
Short. 10 minutes. 2 Lady Gaga Impersonators. Walk on Entourage.
Sometimes the things we want aren’t as simple as they appear. Drag can be deceiving.

Speed Dates with Imaginary Men
Short. 10 minutes. 1 F. 5 Males. (Actors can play more than one part.)
You know those guys that seem so great in all those romantic movies. See what happens when you go on a speed date with them.

Very Bad Speed Dates

An excerpt from speed dates with imaginary men, a ten minute play told in five dates.

You went to jail?

Can’t avenge your father’s death without killing a man.

You killed a man?

Had to babycakes. It was a matter of honor. Look see this
here..this skull with the knife through it, it’s a die fighting.Look at it everyday in the john.

What does the snake mean?

Luke takes off his shirt to reveal a gigantic
back tattoo.

The rattler’s crawling through the barbwire to reach a
rose. See this writing there under my traps. It’s Japanese for every rose has its thorns.
It’s a reminder of Angela-

Did Angela die?

I wish. Snake woman betrayed me...during the war.

Which war?

The big one.

Here! Here!

So the time is play "Plastic People in Waiting" will soon hit the stage. If you haven't reserved tickets yet, please do call 646-329-6588. It'll make me like you a whole lot. Plus I've got seats to fill people.

So goes the elevator pitch:

Dr. Cohen's office is overbooked. His secretary is dead. And Betty, the temp, is left to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile an aging star, a precocious schoolgirl, a pageant mom and a peculiar therapist, all vie for a last nip and tuck with the Doctor before he jets off to Brazil. While they wait, tension builds, personalities clash, and secrets are revealed, ensuring that no one leaves this Doctor's visit unchanged.

Showtimes are: March 12 at 6, March 13 at 7 and March 17 at 6
At the Manhattan Repertory Theatre
303 West 42nd Street
City: New York, NY 10036
