Due to my interest in theater which includes participating in over 70 productions as an actor, crew member, director, or producer, I began to write plays a few years ago. These plays have received public readings and generally positive responses at the Missouri Playwrights Workshop. This group meets on Tuesday evenings on the Campus of the University of Missouri.

My play, Then and Now, won two contests and received staged readings as result. One was the Play Around Contest for Ann Arbor Civic Theatre. The other was the Fall Festival for the South of Broadway Theater Company in North Charleston. It was also a semi-finalist in the Eugene O'Neil National Playwrights Contest and received a reading in the Play Festival at the First Run Theatre in St. Louis. I will be looking for places to send it for additional opportunities for it to be produced.

If you or a group you are affiliated with is interested in possibly producing one of my plays, I would be quite interested in working with you. The links below (all in Word) include a brief synopsis, list of characters, and some sample dialogue for each play. Please contact me if you have any interest in reading the full version of the plays.

Fool for love
