“Suburban Redux” Audio Book Now Released!

Image
The novella adaptation of my play “Suburban Redux” has now been released as an audio book and is available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes and the Audible website.

The book is narrated by the wonderful Mill Scott, who has brought her exceptional talents to this rollicking yet poignant tale about love, truth, and acceptance. She captures the essence of each character perfectly and brings just the right amount sly wit and emotional honesty to make this romantic comedy for the modern family a joy to listen to.

“Suburban Redux” is a witty satire set in the South of England and centers around a bored housewife, her presumed gay son, and supporting characters with secrets of their own!

Reviews for the stage version of the book:

"A witty drawing-room comedy à la Oscar Wilde...Shocking admissions, tearful recriminations and several jolly good laughs...Highly entertaining" --The Montreal Mirror

"A stylish Wildean comedy...The writing is finely tuned...Consistently entertaining"

“Carbon-Based Life Form Seeks Similar” to be Published

I’m pleased to report that an abridged version of my play “Carbon-Based Life Form Seeks Similar” has been selected for publication in the forthcoming anthology “105 Five-Minute Plays for Study and Performance.” The book will be published by theatrical trade publisher Smith & Kraus, Inc. and is edited by John Capecci and Irene Ziegler. The publication date is tentatively scheduled for August, 2016.
The play in its original form was first produced by The Independent Theatre Collective in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 2010. The play was subsequently produced the following year by The Curan Repertory Company at the American Theatre of Actors in New York, as part of its Notes From The Underground Festival.
The popularity of the ten-minute play has risen exponentially over the past 15 years and is now the dominant format in most short play festivals, so it will be interesting to see how this further reduced configuration fares.
A sketch or a skit, of course, can be as short as the writer…
