- Paperclip Messiah
A priest finds himself in the middle of a forbidden love story hidden in a Catholic Parish. Shocking comedy mixed with stirring drama; psychologically disturbing as well as moving.
One of Burlingame’s most controversial works. Voted top play at the Sacramento Playwright Festival and became most sought after script by GLBT theatrical companies around the region.

- Nine Eleven
A comedy-drama set in the lobby of a community college theater. Seven diverse-minded students and their ultraconservative theater instructor face life before and after the Sept. 11 tragedy.

Premiered in Sacramento, April 2002.

- A Mooving (sic) Experience

(Can be done as one-person character piece)
