Two of my ten-minute plays are in production this month: 

Playing with Knives (already previously performed in Ukiah, Los Angeles, and Sydney, Australia) will get additional stage time at the Tapas Short Plays Festival in Rio Nido (by Guerneville), Aug. 26 to Sept. 25. Performances will be at the Pegasus Theatre.

Get your tickets here. Bring a picnic supper to eat on the charming patio before the show, and enjoy a glass of wine and some delectable home-baked desserts at intermission.

Flavor of the Month, the first ten-minute play I ever wrote will have a renewal of sorts. It was originally produced and performed at Mendocino College's 3rd Annual New Plays Festival in 2005, but has not been re-submitted—till now. There were 3 versions of this play. The one submitted for FireRose Productions' Ten Minute Play Festival is a different one than the one performed at Mendocino College. Personally, I prefer this version, and FireRose Productions has always done a fabulous job! The Festival runs from Aug. 18 - Aug. 27 with two different set of eight plays for each weekend. Flavor of the Month is in Group B, Aug. 25 - 27. There will be a special "Best of ..." performance on Sunday, Aug. 28, for the plays voted by the audience to be the best plays of the Festival. Playing with Knives made it there once in 2009.
