Early Liberty – two act drama plays

two act drama plays


“Life is about paying attention to the right things,” but what happens when the people and places you consider safe aren’t? What is “safe” and who spells “Home”?

When Mark Haywood follows the beacon into Lighthouse Cove nothing is what it seems. But if Mark’s world is falling apart—despite increasingly-frantic efforts to keep it together, then the hotel proprietor and his family need a special kind of rescue from each other. Just what will it take for Selma to grow up and for Mark to wake up? Can these dueling opposites save the hotel and find a way to be together? Set in 1985 on the Atlantic shore, Early Liberty explores the limits and boundlessness of love and hope, and the darker side of what it means to dream.

Early Liberty is a play about false fronts and true love, about crossed wires and yardsticks we never measure up to.  This dramatic love story is especially relevant now, especially as regards women’s status, and the parallels between the idealized Reagan Era and the “world as it is today” to reveal that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Early Liberty was produced at Texas State University (Lab Theatre) January 31-February 3, 2013.The play has already been workshopped but the author is open to minor changes, authorized in writing. Read more about playwright Rita Anderson

In this South African Christmas Play, Santa is forced to take a holiday in October by his doctor, who says the stress of being Santa is putting him at risk for a heart attack.  Santa and his wife decide to go to camping in South Africa for their holiday and drink some wine and have fun in the sun.

Unfortunately, Santa is kidnapped and held for ransom by the Tokoloshe, who keeps him in his shack until he gets the ransom. Mrs Claus cannot afford the ransom, and appeals to the embassy of the North Pole to pay it, but it isn’t their policy to pay ransoms or negotiate with kidnappers!

Time passes and Christmas eve approaches. At the North pole,  the elves and other fairytale characters are in a flat panic. In desperation they appeal to Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet to deliver the presents. Unfortunately they don’t drive and will have to deliver the presents on foot…
