My Recent Plays
In addition to the monthly radio shows, which are themselves a one-act radio play each month, I've also been busy with writing one act as well as full-length, large scale community performances, as well as screenplays.
Deaf Storytelling Concert
We Did It Together
April 1, 2023
A unique storytelling concert for and with the deaf community, with nationally acclaimed deaf storyteller Peter Cook serving as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Local storytellers in the deaf community will share their stories, and will also be voice interpreted for audiences, so both deaf and hearing individuals attending the concert will be able to fully enjoy these powerful stories. Free and open to the public.
Set in the mid-twentieth century in Jonesborough, Tennessee, We Did It Together weaves compelling true-life stories in a new original play with music. These inter-related vignettes find ordinary people caught in extraordinary times. Teenage girls called to serve in the Cadet Nurse Corps during WWII; a doctor and his family in Cuba forced to flee as Castro’s rebel’s take over, leading them on an odyssey to find freedom in Northeast Tennessee; the election of Ernest McKinney, the first African American Alderman to serve in Jonesborough; a historic home filled with otherworldly guests. We Did It Together explores the ways that the families and neighborhoods in this small Appalachian community have come together to accomplish great things.
