Since the COVID-19 epidemic began, theaters have shuttered their doors while the ghost light shines 24-7. Instantly theater professionals were out of work. Unlike other industries, theater will take a long time to bounce back.
Like many playwrights, I have lost productions to the suspension of live theater. DINNER THEATER was to be produced in April by Stage Door Productions in Fredericksburg, VA. That production has moved online. A production of BROAD DAYLIGHT is scheduled this fall at the Kraine Theater in New York City (my first NYC production since IT IS DONE in 2011-12) but that is also up in the air. And who knows what else will be postponed or canceled in the coming months or even years.
The good news: many of my plays are available for purchase to read. Here is a complete list of all full length plays, one acts, and monologues available for purchase:
IT IS DONE: available for purchase from Original Works Publishing.
THE THIRD DATE and LYING NAKED: Turn the Page: two one-act plays about Closure. Original Works Publishing.
