Stageplays

Updated 1 April 2008

Kingdoms:  A comedy in two (and a third) acts.  A cast of seven very curious individuals, including a king, queen, Jack, peasant, lady-in-waiting, and knight, join with the always popular aardvark to connive and find themselves at odds with each together as they learn about royalty (and royal pains), and careen through Elizabethan, Danish, Mycenaean, and Twentieth Century throne rooms.  The emphasis is on spoofing many of the best known stories of the stage, and at the same time learning about control -- control of children, relationships, and all the forms we create and ultimately release to their own free will.  Now Showing -- Premiered July 30, 2003.

Perceptions:  Sporting a cast of six women and five men, the comedy is set in a university office/laboratory, and in the midst of the experiments surrounding around one young professorís research into ESP.  Simplicity becomes complexity, however, as the professor is soon plagued by an assortment of weirdly talented subjects, university and governmental bureaucracy, and a particularly inept spy.  Funny dialogue is combined with riotous action, as eleven major characters contribute to all manner of bedlam and humorous conflict.  Now Showing -- Premiered December 1, 2003.

 

What Now?:  An original comedy in two acts, the play with a cast of three women and two men revolves around a unique relationship between a father and his daughter.  The play opens with the daughter on a rare visit to her father, bringing home a new boyfriend, whom the father has never met, and who is eight years older than the daughter.  Only the boyfriend turns out to be a husband, and the daughter pregnant.  To add just a bit of confusion, the father has a younger girlfriend of whom the daughter was previously unaware.  By the end of the first act, we also discover the prior romantic relationship between the daughter's new husband and the fatherís girlfriend.  As all of the plots and subplots unravel, everyone becomes involved, including a caustic, very funny maid.  A multitude of relationships, including a few that are very unusual, are explored with humor and genuine care.  The play is about real people in an unusual, albeit increasingly possible situation as society begins to deal with diminishing limits on who can fall in love with whom.  And in what order.  The possibilities are not only real, but primed for a great deal of laughs.  Now Showing - Premiered February 14, 2007.

The Play; P.T.S.D.:  With a cast of ten men and one woman, P.T.S.D. is a drama about Vietnam Veterans and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Essentially a long one-act play, itís subject matter and message are extremely powerful.  P.T.S.D. addresses the major problem of over a half million Vietnam Veterans and the still, all-pervasive psychological difficulties arising from war and traumatic events.  It is a play which offers a significant alternative of treatment, and a possible opportunity for the alleviation of a great deal of suffering.  Coming Soon.

Beauty and the Beast:  Where might a beauty find her own special beast, and that same beast find a beauty?  Why not in a play, which while not strictly about the classic fairy tale, is sufficiently similar...  (Most all plays are largely about beauties and beasts.)  This particular play is about two very lonely, married people.  The loneliness stems from their being married to other people.  But in the illusions of a play, they find the cure.  Coming Soon .
