FINAL CONVERSATIONS – PLAY FOR DRAMA SCHOOL

Final Conversations is about a Mother’s regret, wanting to roll back time to attain one perfect moment, one real conversation with her Son before he’s accidentally killed. The set up is simple: one day before school Mother suddenly “knows” that Son has an hour to live. With a “kitchen sink” approach, she attempts to change fate, using comedic often absurd methods to reach Son, none of which alters destiny or brings peace in this play for drama school.

PRODUCTION HISTORY:
Final Conversations was nominated for the John Cauble Outstanding Short Play Competition at The Kennedy Center. It was produced by the Missouri State Theatre, Texas State University, Lab Theatre and The FronteraFest, at Hyde Park Theatre, Austin, Texas in 2017.

Jars – drama about love between two women

What’s a kiss between friends? For Heely it is everything. Evidence that her feelings for Shyne weren’t a daydream and vice versa. Evidence that their childhood adventures together were as real as the fireflies Heely wants to spend forever after catching, with Shyne at her side… and their dog – as it should be. And evidence that a southern wife’s story can have its roots in the most unlikely soils, roots that ought to decay now that Shyne has her husband aka ‘him,’ roots that are thriving into a forbidden flower as Shyne still ‘visits’ with her ‘old childhood friend’ and a grown flower that basks in the radiating light of the love between two women who were not meant to fall in love. So is the one act drama about love between two women telling the story of Shyne and Heely, called Jars. It is an act of passion, torment and mostly, of hope.

From one to the other, paths had crossed, blood was spilled and they would forever be lovers.

SEXBOT – SCIENCE FICTION DRAMA SCRIPT

In Sexbot, a science fiction drama script in three acts, we are introduced to Pris – an artificial human, engineered with the DNA of famously deceased actress Soledad Xavier, for one purpose and one purpose alone: to make the God Emperor (a superhuman messiah) fall in love with her, at least, according to Viggo, a spy and the only person that Pris has encountered since her awakening.

Pris is the sixth test subject to be given this somewhat thankless job and she comes with the works; she is a lot smarter than her predecessors, she has actual memories of Soledad’s life, a deeper capacity towards emotional intelligence (both inward and outward) and a heightened sense of her innermost feelings, as well as the ability to effectively express them. With all her upgrades, she is seemingly equipped with all the tools that would enable her to successfully seduce the emotionally juvenile God King but Pris has her doubts and fears and while Viggo acknowledges the truths behind her feelings of uncertainty, Pris may be the only option available so that the God Emperor may come to be completely under the cause’s political control.

Sexbot explores the complicated nature of human sexuality, human nature,  the feelings and thoughts surrounding love and the dramatic lengths some will go to exploit it.

Is the purpose of life reserved only for the living?

ADAM AND YOSHI – AWARD WINNING ONE ACT COMEDY-DRAMA

Trying to pick up the pieces while going through a divorce, Adam moves back in with his mother. The arrangement gives him the liberty and creative freedom to write, as he tries to come to terms with the loss of his other half which interestingly enough coincides with the appearance of Yoshi, his new girlfriend… kind of. Yoshi and Adam have a normal relationship; they met at a comic’s convention, she pops in through his window consistently dressed in the same superhero garb (mask included), they fight and talk and talk while fighting and then they make love in this award winning comedy-drama.

Yoshi’s full name, ‘’Yoshi, Warrior Princess of the Divine Order of Nesparotu of the Kiuan on the planet Darden’’ maintains that she is from the planet Darden and her purpose is to copulate with an Earthling, so as to impregnate her. Okay, so not much of a ”normal” relationship, but this comedy-drama in one act does explore the dynamics that every person in the world goes and grows through when they choose, yet again, to open their hearts.

When Yoshi reveals a shocking truth to Adam he faces a future that is more uneasy than he had anticipated his life would become after his divorce.

EDDIE – AWARD WINNING ROMANTIC DRAMA

Eddie’s girlfriend, Maya (actress, big boobs) is about to leave him. ‘About to’ because well she hasn’t done so… just yet. He confides in Sara about this soon-to-be development and it turns out Maya will be dumping Eddie for Sara’s boyfriend Nat (writer/director, interesting hairstyle). It’s all one hot mess and smart as he is, Eddie recognizes it as just that in this award winning romantic drama.

Eddie has a choice now (as he has before): to quietly contemplate his penchant for being involved in (or drawn to) chaotic situations – a memento from his childhood – or engage further in the disorder that this particular situation presents. For Eddie it is easier to drown his emotions and feelings into someone new. Maya, Sara and even an unsuspecting classmate find out the hard way why Eddie is what he is. When his mother’s death sends his already spiralled world into a very real tornado that almost surely spells his end it’s up to them to ‘save him’. Does he love each of them (Maya, Sara, Marni)? Perhaps. Is he using one of them? One or more. Is it all he knows? Sure. And it is not his fault. The question then is, when will it be?

The reality of choosing is that a choice must be made.

Eddie has been workshopped in the Hollywood Fringe Festival and won an encore award in 2015.

It’s summer on the East End of Long Island, a magical time for everyone, especially the young.  Joe and David are local boys, born and raised in Laurel. Even though New York City is only 90 miles away they have only been there a couple of times, to the zoo or a baseball game. Summers for teenagers on the North Fork are spent on the beach, in the water, hanging out with friends and making new friends with the summer rental “city folk” in this script about brothers loving the same girl.

This summer David and Joe have  fallen in love with Angela, a brown eyed girl renting next door. The matriarch of the family, Nana, sees what’s happening and senses a “storm” brewing. She warns Joseph not to interfere with his younger brother.

He doesn’t listen to her and one day Joe and Angela disappear. They are found days later in Montauk. Angela’s father threatens to have Joe charged with statutory rape. He’s innocent, but it is agreed by the families that Joe be sent away to live with relatives. David can’t forgive him.

THE CHRONICLES OF JACK – CONTEMPORARY SOUTH AFRICAN PLAYS

In Johannesburg, anything can happen, everything can change and everyone knows it. Jackson ‘’Jack’’ Makhubo, a 23 year old resident of the Eastern Cape decides that he will not be attending initiation school in the mountains and that he’ll instead be embarking on his studies in drama at a university in Johannesburg. Unfortunately his mother then throws him out of their family home making it possibly the last memory of home he ever has.

In The Chronicles of Jack a boy becomes a man in a way he did not expect when he is thrown into the chaos of modern Johannesburg’s university life. Jack is robbed, attends a ‘Fees Must Fall’ rally that has him subsequently expelled and discovers the true identity of his father, who has largely been absent from the boy’s life, all within the space of a week. It’s a harsh introduction to the city but as his best friend Fezi lamented before he left, ‘’It leaves room for Jack to be a better man. ’’

It’s either you get Johannesburg, or it gets you.

REGICIDE – FANTASY PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT REVOLUTION. AND MURDER

There are those who hate the King and Queen. They have their reasons. Mainly, the violence, bloodshed, murder and oppression they have lived with under the monarchs rule. ‘’Those’’ like Zanna and Lucien, belong to a brotherhood that seeks to destroy the King and Queen once and for all. In Regicide, a play in three acts, their lives revolve around their resolve to bring power back to the people, their respect for the authorities who will carry out the order for the final blow and the sweet revolution of retribution that will follow the simple task that must be done quickly and quietly – kill the King and Queen’s new born son in this fantasy play script.

The logic, according to Zanna and Lucien’s Commander (Jacob) is that without an heir, the wretched kingdom will surely collapse and so Lucien and Zanna must ensure that the threat is completely annihilated. ‘’The Threat’’, merely a day or two old, who has done nothing but exist thus far, who understands nothing’ and is as harmless as can be, must be killed and it is Lucien who has volunteered to do it. But can he? … Could you?

A monologue from a soldier who used to fight in the Middle East for the British army. He’s returned from war, with the memories of the people he watched die right in the war.  Bodies he had to put together and bury in mass graves. Ordinary people who had families.

Whenever he closes his eyes, all he can see is their faces, disintegrating in front of him as the bomb hits. The only the thing that drowns the pain is booze. He knows he’s killing himself drinking so much. But it’s the only thing that stops him thinking about it in this monologue about post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
