Earlier this year, my 10-minute play, Yellow Means Caution, went up at Short+Sweet Sydney, the flagship of the Short+Sweet Festival.

Directed by Victoria Lewis and featuring Andrew Wang and Emma Mylot, Yellow Means Caution won the People’s Choice Award for Week 5 of the festival, and ended up taking 3rd place overall (out of more than 80 shows) in the final People’s Choice vote!

Victoria was kind enough to send me a video of the performance, and I have to say that it’s so cool to hear my words performed with Australian accents! Thank you, Victoria, Andrew, and Emma for a fine job, and congratulations on your success!

You can see a couple of photos from the production on the project page for Yellow Means Caution.

About Yellow Means Caution

For those of you who don’t know the play, or don’t want to watch the video, here’s a quick synopsis:

Max comes home and finds that his wife, Loretta has painted every surface in their apartment bright yellow. Is it a bold style choice, or a sign that there’s something amiss?

I love this script. I wrote it as a part of a Beatles-themed 24-hour show in 2011 at Theatre Unleashed. I’m honestly shocked and thrilled at how well it was received. It was so popular, in fact, Theatre Unleashed gave it an encore run in 2013 as a part of Best of 24. Last year, I submitted it to Short+Sweet on a whim after bringing The Anniversary Issue to the inaugural Short+Sweet Hollywood. It has since gone up in both Manila and Sydney. I hope this is only the beginning of many such productions.

Interested in the script? Purchase it online, either as a part of my compilation, Up All Night, or as a single eTen from Original Works Publishing. Want to perform it? Comment below or drop me a line!
