I mentioned earlier that I’m publishing my old one-acts on Amazon. I don’t know what anyone is going to do with them there, as the purchase of a copy of a script is distinct from purchasing performance rights for a production. But I decide who gets the rights to my plays, and I’m gonna go ahead and let anyone who buys scripts have performance rights. Go ahead. Go nuts. Up until this month, they were sitting on my computer as nostalgia for my misbegotten youth. Now three of them at least, are out there. Have fun (click the images for the Amazon link)
- Send in the Clowns. Morning-after farce. Hungover college kids wake up. Hilarity ensues. This was my first one, and my old college pals still remember it fondly. Considering I was 18 when I wrote it, it holds up pretty well. There are still parts I find funny, anyway.
- In the Beginning. God and the Devil meet up in Heaven after the Devil’s Fall, snark at each other, and check in on Adam and Eve. Began as a philosophical dialogue. I was a sophomore at the time, but some of the ideas in here are still solid.
- Clinical Insanity. Later piece, centered on a what-if scenario: “What if a lunatic could turn his lunacy on and off, for the lulz, as it were?” I had great fun writing this one, and it shows. It’s been produced at least one festival, so other people have liked it, too.
I’ve got about three more of these to do. Will post when I get updates.
