Hi, I have written three full length plays: since 2013: VEILS OF JUSTICE, EMBERS OF TENT CITY and SAM'S RABBLE - plus short plays. All inspired by actual events and people who took action for fairness for others at risk to themselves. I am looking for the right audiences for each play. I would also like to use readings, pro bono, to raise awareness and funds for organizations working for fairness in areas related to one or more of the plays.
I have also written two screenplays: BELLY UP and FEAR & LONGING as well as several one-acts, ... and a puppet show, 'ASTRONUT' MEETS A SPACE MONSTER..
