Just Desserts

(2M, 1F, 1E)

If revenge is a dish best served cold, what does Karma taste like? Three heroic adventurers find a magical crown with powers beyond their wildest dreams, but only one can wear it. The bodies pile up as each makes their case to be the most worthy. An epic comic fantasy adventure delivered in ten minutes or less!

Just Desserts premiered on June 15th, 2013 at the Hollywood Fringe Festival as a part of Theatre Unleashed’s 24-Hour Theatre Experiment, Go Ahead, Make My…. It featured Ben Atkinson as Sir Wilhelm, Ashley Strand as Lady Emory, Dain August Ouradnik as Brother Phycus, and Liesl Jackson as the voice of The Crown. Directed by Liesl Jackson. Stage Manager Erin Scott.

A musical adaptation, featuring songs by Michael Gordon Shapiro, premiered in May 2014 at Theatre Unleashed as a part of the Passages one-act play festival.

In Defense of Slurs

Last week, a high school student in South Carolina e-mailed asking me to grant him the rights to produce Friends Like These. Not the stage rights; the film rights. He wants to turn my play into a film.

Road Trip! Plus, Tattered Capes is coming…

This past weekend, the cast and crew of Ada and the Engine at Theatre Unleashed took a road trip up to San Jose to visit the Computer History Museum! Originally, Heidi, our director, and Tom, our assistant director (also Heidi’s husband) had approached me about the road trip because they’d heard the museum had a replica of Babbage’s Difference Engine.
