In this crazed mash-up parody of the Harry Potter and Twilight series--with interlopers crashing in from Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland and many other places--you'll encounter deli-owning vegetarians, invisible rabbits, magical carrot weapons, random lunatics, soothing offstage voices, evil gourmets and much more, as everyone's favorite wizards, vampires and werewolves battle to save miserable, gloomy Spork--and indeed the world--from certain destruction.
Three New Plays Now Available Check out the latest additions to my catalogue! There's a crazed one-act comedy Run Like the Dickens (the younger, shorter sibling of the full-length version), and two new ten-minute dramedies, perfect for competition and short play fests. Straight Eye for the Gay Guy is about a gay kid who turns to his straight friend for help, and in Closeted, two teens are trapped in the closet during a game of the infamous teen rite of passage Seven Minutes in Heaven.
In January, I'll be at the Kansas Thespian Festival, where I'll be teaching workshops and getting to watch a production of the one-act version of The Locker Next 2 Mine. And then it's off to Nashville and the Tennessee Thespian Festival to teach more eager young writers. I'll finish the month at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, CA, where I'll be in-residence during their production of the full-length Rumors of Polar Bears!
