Performing My Plays

I’d enjoy nothing more than to have you and/or your organization perform one of my plays.  If you are an actor who would like to use one of my plays for scene work, feel free to download the script and have at it.  Email me and let me know how the play is received.

If you run a community-based organization or if you are involved in a charitable pursuit and find that one of my plays speaks to your constituents, I’d be happy to “loan” one of my plays to your charitable cause free of charge.  Just let me know who you are and when you intend to perform the play.

If you represent a professional theater and are interested in reading and/or producing one of my plays, let me know.  While I do not generally charge for staged readings of my work, I will need to be compensated for any full production of one of my plays.  I’m sure we can work something out.
