In lieu of a post today, I’m going to direct you to my guest post on

Shuffle off to #newplay

There’s a great video about the Buffalo theater scene, so even if the post bores you to tears, give that a watch. It’s awesome!

In other news, my short play, Life Lines, won the Best of Fest at the Seoul Players’ Ten-Minute Play Festival last weekend. And this past Monday and Tuesday, I’m told three “very funny” guys performed my short, Black and White, at the n.u.f.a.n. Table and Chairs Festival in Chicago. A good week for productions!

December 5 is the official date for my developmental reading of my newest full-length play, Seeds, so I’m very excited about that. I have an incredible cast and I can’t wait to hear this out loud in their voices. 

I’m one half scene away from finishing my newest full-length one-act.  It’s about sixty pages or so, a new length for me, though it’s very possible when I’m done with it, it’ll end up being longer. I’ve got a big hole in it, though, three scenes from the end. I couldn’t figure out how to get from A to B, so I picked up from the next scene and finished it. I’m still trying to figure out how to fix that problem… Also still toying with some different titles for it, so I won’t be posting anything about it just yet, but I’d love any advice on how to fix that hole!
