Published plays: Reindeer Games: A Christmas Panto for Young and Olde!, a full-length, large cast, made for stage holiday extravaganza (Leicester Bay Theatricals). I Love You When It's Raining, Roy G. Biv, a large cast, nostalgic one-act drama about an inspirational teacher (Lazy Bee Scripts). Delia Dancer, Doughnut Girl, a full-length, large cast, made for stage, audience participation radio melodrama-comedy (Heuer Publishing). The Mistake is a fast-paced madcap, one act comedy, a private conversation, a humorous biting look at best friends (Green Room Press). The Man in Seat 24 or (The Uninvited Guest), a full-length, two act murder mystery where an irate, rude, and combative theatre patron (in your audience!) hijacks the cast, the crew, and his fellow theatre-goers and winds up stone-cold dead at center stage (Brooklyn Publishers). You Don't Have to Feed A Cello, a 45-minute, large cast, one-act comedy, is a young man's worst nightmare, his own personal life, mistakes and failures, brought hilariously to the stage in embarrassing moments orchestrated and revealed by a Greek chorus of six nagging mothers in his head (Heuer Publishing and Brooklyn Publishers). Nose as Long as a Telephone Wire, a large cast one act comedy, has a wonderful collection of colorful, wild, and magical characters who create the otherworldly lies and truths in this humorous tale of deception, revelation, duplicity, and shenanigans (Brooklyn Publishers). Lakeside Lunch--A Restaurant Farce is a large cast ten-minute romp, where a noon day meal gets served up in a fast-paced whirlwind of comic mayhem when an irate waiter, a loud and opinionated chef, and a small gang of singing servers take on a customer's innocent questions and a three-ring circus explodes in a peaceful hotel dining room (Smith Scripts UK).
