April is turning out to be quite a month.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, my only real goal as a playwright is to have plays produced in each of the 50 states. This month, I can check Alabama off of the list. A 10-minute play called “Red Jello Jigglers” is going to be done at the Panoply Arts Festival in Huntsville. I co-wrote this play with Tina Jens. It’s about Jello.
Speaking of plays, my 10-minute play “Orville and Wilbur Discuss Women’s Liberation” is being produced here in Chicago. It’ll be performed April 15 and 16 by Rubicon Theatre Project at Live Bait Theater. This play is about Women’s Rights and Muppets. Tickets are $10.
On a more global scale, my short-short story “Ballad of the Bayou” is going to appear in the Australian anthology BLACK BOX. Copies are available now from Brimstone Press.
And finally, my short story “In the Shadows of Wrigley Field” has been nominated for a Derringer Award. Yay!
