- Empty Closets
A comedy about a coming out workshop where five participants and a moderator share their stories. Among them: Joey comes out and nobody cares; Cheyenne comes out as a straight woman to her lesbian parents; and Claire looks for love at the lesbian owned coffee house.
Produced at St. Louis Pride in 1998, and at Omaha’s Snap! Fest in 1999, where it was nominated by the city’s Theater Arts Guild as “Outstanding One-Act.”
One-Act: 40-45 min.
- No AIDS, No Alcohol, No Sex, No Stonewall
A comedy about a gay writer and his lover who hash out ideas for a gay TV series when all sorts of characters materialize and try to bully their way onto the show. Do they all deserve a spot, or are they just stereotypes?
Produced at St. Louis Pride, 1997.
One-Act: 45 min.
- Ship In A Bottle
A poetic musical about obsessive love, alcoholism, and bondage. Donny doesn’t believe true love can happen naturally, so he auctions himself off as a slave. What is, in the end, the ultimate sacrifice for love? Haunting songs, minimal set, bizarre and unique.
Originally produced April, 1999. The song “I’m Coming Home” can be retrieved from our Web site.
Two-Act: under 2 hours
A gay couple in Anchorage invite another couple over for dinner. Cody wants to have sex before hand so they’ll have something to talk about over dinner. Bailey rejects the offer in favor of watching a TV bio or Rula Lenska. Bailey’s always rejecting Cody, but one of their slutty dinner guests finds Cody all too attractive. It gets raunchy, but it just might not be what you think.
Two-Act: under 2 hours
- Rich White Trash
Chet, a lonely closeted gay man in Johnson City, Tennessee tries to navigate his way through a controlling wealthy mother, a secretary that doesn’t know the meaning of the word work, and a straight best friend who’s tapping into Chet’s love for him for money, and perhaps a bit more. Funny at times, and creepy.
- They Came From Times Beach
A politically altered America where all folks are treated equally because they have to behave equally — as straight white protestant males. What happens when the gay son of a prominent
government official gets swept up into an anti-establishment underground? And who, indeed, are the mutants from Times Beach?
This play was a finalist in two St. Louis contests. Produced November, 1998.
