Where it began

Play 1 - Page 1

To mark the beginning of this website, I thought I'd start with the beginning of my playwriting career.  It was the spring of 1994 and I was at the State Thespian Festival in Tampa, Florida.  I went to a seminar on playwriting one morning and the playwright ... didn't show up.  I'm guessing because it was the morning and he was a playwright.  I had to kill time until another meeting so I sat in the hallway of a hotel and started writing my first real play.  Back then I thought I was going to be an actor.  I was wrong.

"Lesbian School" premiered about eighteen months later at Cornell University in the fall of 1995.  That's where this all began.
