“Filler” Now Published; London Production Announced

I’m pleased to report that my play “Filler” is now published in the new anthology “The Best Ten Minute Plays 2014”, published by Smith & Kraus, Inc., edited by Lawrence Harbison. This is the fifth play I’ve had included in these annual anthologies, and I’m delighted to be in the company of so many other talented playwrights. The book is literally hot off the press, so unfortunately I can’t yet provide any links to it, though it will doubtless be popping up at all fine retailers of note in the very near future.

Also, I recently received word that “Filler” has been selected by London’s Ghost Dog Productions for inclusion in its latest Playground New Writing Showcase. The show will comprise of eight plays, all revolving around the theme of deception. The production takes place from 21st-23rd of July, 2014, at The Horse & Stables, in Waterloo, London. More details will become available on the company’s Facebook page closer to opening. I’m so happy to have this play produced in my …

“The Craft” in Lexington, KY

I’m very pleased to announce that “The Craft” has been selected by Lexington, Kentucky’s Studio Players for inclusion in its 2014 10-Minute Play Festival. Established in 1953, Studio Players are Kentucky’s oldest community-involved theatre, and I’m proud to have my play be a small part of their long history. The festival takes place from the 7th to the 10th of August, so if you’re in the area at that time do try to go along and see it.

More details should be available on the company’s website closer to the opening.

“The Craft” a Hit at Pink Banana!

The Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel has given a Pink Banana Theatre Co.’s 2014 One-Act Festival “The Honeymoon is Over” a wonderfully glowing review, including some lovely kudos for “The Craft”:

“Change can't come soon enough for the two characters mired in Andrew Biss' "The Craft" — the night's last and funniest piece — which features two actors (played by Jonathon Weisse and Amanda Eaton) enacting a love scene on stage, even though they actually hate each other.

The disconnect between the roles they must play and their toxic interior monologues is the perfect nightcap for a collection in which we're continually reminded that in both theater and life, we play best when we passionately believe in the scripts we perform.”

There’s still time to catch the show as it continues its run every day at 7:30pm until the final performance this Saturday, June 14th at the Next Act Theatre (Box office: 414-278-0765).

In the meantime, I’ll just wish Jonathon and Amanda …
