New plays available - The Great Escape and The Most Wonderful Love

Two of my plays, The Great Escape and The Most Wonderful Love, are now available as a part of the Indie Theater Now digital library. These plays, first produced in 2004 and 2006 respectively are two that I've always been extremely proud of, and they were well-received during their original runs. The New York Times was especially effusive about The Most Wonderful Love. From the review:

Oddly enough, the play was never workshopped elsewhere, produced or published. I'm glad that, five years later, it's seeing the light of day. I certainly hope you give it a look. It's big and rowdy and fun.

The Great Escape, for its part, was the first play I had produced with Blue Coyote Theater Group and the first directed by Kyle Ancowitz. The premise involves two siblings wrapping their newly remarried mother in a sack and holding her hostage. It's, you know, funny. For those few that follow my plays, it's become pretty closely associated with "what I do." The characters are often named after people in my real life, the situations very close to home. It's another play that I feel would love to be remounted and revisited.
