New short play - AUTUMN IN CENTRAL PARK

Another new 10-minute play, hot off the press!  I finally got over my writer's block...

Yellow leaves are swirling under a blue sky on an October morning in New York City.  Young Maida and her new acquaintance, a roadie named Richard who works for bands, have a confrontation in Central Park about why she doesn't want to have a fling with him.

New short play - NEVER AGAIN

The first new script I've written in several months...a friend suggested I write something to the prompt of "Never Again."

In the story, Angie and Judith argue about bad men, loss of virginity, Bill Gates, and the Catholic church, all while drinking cocktails in Angie's living room.  But they end up agreeing that if they lived like quiet nuns in a cloister, they couldn't listen to the Rolling Stones.
