Chatter

(Intrigue, Lies, Secrets, and Spies)

Commissioned by 24th Street Theatre, an evening of plays on the theme of Intrigue, Lies, Secrets and Spies. Watch spook geeks clearing a hotel room of bugs, the grand deceptions of aging literati, and teenage boys talking too much, while you take in a dinner party, the wild west, and a girl's bedroom.

Development:

Staged Readings, 2005 (24th Street Theatre, Los Angeles)

The Witching Hour

(The Dog Ear Witch Plays)

Our first collective project, an evening of short plays about witches: the old-fashioned kind; the modern kind; the kind you might meet in a beauty parlor; the kind you might even sleep with. Do you know where your daughter is? How much do you want that part? Ever have an experience with Jesus? Ready for singing lessons? Can't wait for the wedding night? Like to play with matches? Join us for a few answers.
