I'll be teaching a workshop about finding and developing ideas for a new play or screenplay at the PA Thespians Conference, on Saturday December 4th. If you're a student, you can download the HANDOUT.
As my website approaches 1.5 million visitors (see the counter above), I've decided to add in a button for the "Buy me a coffee" website. I've always been adamant about having free monologues to download, and I'm going to keep them free - but I figure that at least having the option for people to tip a small amount if they want to isn't a bad thing. I don't think I'll get enough to offset the cost of the website, but anything helps! We'll see how it goes.
So I've finished (kind of - they're never finished) a new play, Mrs. Dilber's Fabulous Bedcurtains, and I've also written a Radio-play version of the script (both on the New Play Exchange, or contact me!)
I'm pretty pleased with this one - a flexible cast size from 8 to 36, and perfect for theaters looking for an alternative to A Christmas Carol!
Coming in February 2022, Next Stage Press will be publishing The Lady Demands Satisfaction!
Congrats to director Becca Padrick, and the whole cast and crew at the TBA Theatre production of Long Joan Silver! I had a great time talking to the cast via zoom when they were in rehearsals, and watching you all killing it on stage via YouTube!
I'm still working on a play about The Mysterious Disappearance of Agatha Christie - developed with Houston's Alley Theatre. Here's some inside info, courtesy of Brendan Bourque-Sheil and the Landing Theatre New Works Podcast!
A drama teaching friend of mine asked me to muse on what makes a strong standalone monologue for her class... so here's my take on it!
The Lady Demands Satisfaction won the Region IV David Mark Cohen Playwriting Award!
