The Life & Times of Tulsa Lovechild

This play has been compared to Thomas Pynchon, Jack Kerouac, and Hee Haw. The story of a directionless Gen X’er and the eccentrics she meets driving cross-country to scatter her hippie mom’s ashes in the parking lot of a motel must resonate. The Chicago Tribune named it the Best Off-Loop Play of the Year in 2001 and it’s in its 20th year of being produced by small theatres, universities and high schools across the country.

Home Front

Workshopped with Stage Left Theatre in Chicago, published by Broadway Play Publishing in New York, and taught in university theatre classes in the U.S. and London, Home Front, a challenging piece about the complicity and consequences of life during war time, has never been fully produced.

U.S. Blues

Collection of one-acts and monologues spanning the years 1991-2008, including works that premiered at the Bloomington Playwrights Project, various Off-Loop Chicago venues, and with the Subterranean Theatre Company at storefront theatres in Los Angeles.
