FREE DRY ON THURSDAYS - WHERE TO PURCHASE
I am pleased to announce the publication of my short play Free Dry on Thursdays, available from Blue Dasher Press.
These two characters were first created for a screenplay I wrote years ago. This particular scene always stayed with me until I finally gave in and adapted it for the stage. Mary and Tameka fascinate me (both were inspired by women I've known and worked with), as they desire more than they have. They know they're capable of living different lives than their current ones. The racial dynamic in the piece (as well as the underlying theme of privilege) is never talked about (fully) in the script, but, much like in life, it's always there.

SHIMMER - WHERE TO PURCHASE
I'm pleased to announce the publication of my short play Shimmer, available from Blue Dasher Press.
These two characters were born out of an entirely different project (a screenplay I wrote years ago). Yet, they stayed with me and insisted they deserved their own story. I started writing from the point of two people who deal with misconceptions about who they actually are (in this case a "pool boy" and a "suburban housewife".) Their connection and bond seemed apparent as I started to write the script.

CLEAN - WHERE TO PURCHASE THIS SCRIPT
I am pleased to announce the publication of my stage play Clean, available from Blue Dasher Press.
Clean has been a part of my life for more than 20 years. I wrote the first draft of the script while living in Chicago, shortly after I'd read an article about actress Rita Hayworth and her personal struggle with Alzheimer's. While the character of Victoria was inspired by Rita Hayworth (the play is dedicated to her), she is certainly a woman of her own.
Clean was initially a one-act play (the first scene of this new, expanded version). I always knew and felt there was more story to tell, about Maria and Victoria's beautiful friendship and Victoria's complicated relationship with her daughter Melanie (who is only mentioned in the earlier version of the play but is a character on stage in this one). While working on this script over the last year, my heart broke many times while writing these women's words, knowing how many people and families are having similar conversations - famous or not.
