GREAT LAND – A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY – a two act drama romance

It’s the summer of 1977 in Chicago, USA.  Renata, who works at the local bar, coerces one of the regulars, Nicky into taking Danny, a disabled kid who works at the local bar as well and who is a die hard Elvis fan, to Graceland to meet the King himself. The play follows their journey from Chicago down to Graceland and their subsequent discovery that Elvis has recently passed away before Danny could meet him. They find that, although they did not get to meet The King, they have learned a lot more about themselves and each other along the way.

PIGEONS – A TWO-ACT DRAMA PLAY

“Pigeons” is a two-act drama about a man named Lester, in his thirties, who is about to inherit a fortune left to him by his dead grandmother on the condition  that he is married before he is thirty five years old. Unfortunately, Lester is a recluse who dropped out of high school in his senior year after failing a course in English. He is completely obsessed with breeding a champion homing pigeon. He spends the better part of his days on the roof of his Philadelphia home with his pigeons.  Lester is supported by his sister, Sistine, a Catholic nun who supports him by bringing food everyday as otherwise he just wouldn’t cope.
Sistine decides to take the matter of Lester being married into her own hands. She brings home a single young woman who works as a clerk at the convent.

Lester has a problem in that he hasn’t kissed a female for years. We learn as the play progresses what caused this trauma in Lester’s life. The young woman’s mission is directed with the nun’s encouragement to get Lester over his phobia and become his wife.

The two-act drama play gets convoluted when a boyhood friend of Lester and his sister arrive in the second act. As the play progresses, we learn the Machiavellian reasons for the nun’s motivations.

“Pigeons,” was professionally produced at the “New World Theater” in Miami Beach a few years ago. It was also produced at several theaters in Baltimore/Annapolis as well as several dinner theaters.
