One Act Plays

Writing One-Act Plays is like a cleansing of the mind and food for the soul. Quite often there is a little story in need of being told, yet it’s not big enough to sustain its own momentum as a full-length play and not all stories and ideas need to be.


These are my little gems of gold which have yet to see the light of day, unstaged, unexplored and laying dormant; waiting for their lights to warm up, their curtain to go up and their characters to come to life. 


You're welcome to browse through these gems of gold, and maybe you're the one to shine their light.
