PARALEGAL HUMOR

This is a comedy web-series about paralegals in a big law firm. It’s well produced and funny. I appear in Episode 2 in a taped greeting from a senior partner. Advertisements

SCRIPTS AVAILABLE

Here are descriptions of several plays, full-length and one-act, that I will send to anyone who requests them. Most have been published or performed, but I retain all rights for further performance. Although written for the stage, most could be adapted relatively easily for film. If you would like to receive an electronic copy of […]

THE LIGHT IN YOUR HEART

Send me a message if you would like to read, at no cost, THE LIGHT IN YOUR HEART, a comedy-mystery-romance, which was described by one scholar as “Shakespearean in scope,” but at the same time is funny and unpretentious. The action follows Susan in the noir world of a 1950s small city, escaping murderous parents […]

New Collection

ACTING—Sort of a Resume

People think I’m getting rich from a commercial in which I play the leading role and do the voice-over (above). In fact, it was a non-union job for which I got a small one-time fee. Even though it’s shown nationwide fairly often, the only benefit for me is a certain amount of credibility. It’s been […]
