"Higher" and "War Story" in the NJ OMPF
On January 19 and 20, I had to be (had to be?!) in Santa Barbara for PlayFest. But two of my one-minute plays were being done back in New Jersey at Passage Theater in Trenton, home to the 2013 NJ One Minute Play Festival. A celebration of theater and community, the one minute plays were submitted by writers from all over the state, and directed and acted by local talent. It was a great challenge to write these short plays -- like writing haiku. Wish I could have been there!
"War Story" is about a couple soldiers who are caught in a no-win situation.
"Higher" is about a couple who is weathering a storm, and figuring out what matters most to them as the water rises.
