|"The American Son Versus Hitler"|
1943, a 10 year old boy has fantasies of gaining super powers, and going
to Europe to kill Hitler. Roughly half the script depicts the boy's
fantasy, and the other half is his real life on the home front.
|"The Deadwood Kid"|
|In 1923 an
ancient cowboy and his loyal Indian sidekick uncover the scandals of
President Harding's administration.
|"With Sword And Rubber Chicken"|
|A comedy version of "The Odyssey" filled with ancient, classic gags.|
|"A Night In Transylvania"|
|A comedy version of "Dracula."
|"Laughing It Up"|
|To date, this is my only script that has been
filmed. It has finally been released on DVD in the U.S., and is
available from Amazon.com. However, I am not entirely happy with the
production. And I never earned a dime from it. Click on the
title for more info..
|"Playhouse Of The Damned"|
|An anthology of short horror plays.|
|"Stan Starburst . . . Beyond The Stratosphere!!!"|
|A parody of cliffhanger serials featuring a hero in outer space!|
|Parodies of "Hamlet," "Macbeth," and "King Lear"|
|"Science Fiction Blast-Off Theater"|
|An anthology of Science Fiction Plays|
|This will be a series of comedies combining the styles of Commedia dell' Arte and the American film comedies of the first half of the Twentieth Century. I recently completed all three acts of the first play.|
|"Theater of Thrills & High Adventure"|
|Okay, I've done an anthology of horror stories in "Playhouse of the Damned" and an anthology of science fiction stories in "Science Fiction Blast-Off Theatre." Now I'm going to try a similar anthology - this time of adventure stories. Wish me luck.|
|"The Sketchbook of Sherlock Holmes"||
|The story of the Giant Rat of Sumatra, Ricoletti of the Club Foot and his Abominable Wife - and maybe others if I get around to writing them.|
|The Hare Lip Project|
|Everyone in the world did a "Blair Witch Project" parody. I wrote one, but never filmed it.|
|Abbott & Costello Meet The Godfather|
|Francis Ford Coppola once said that if he kept
doing "Godfather" films, he'd end up doing "Abbott
& Costello Meet The Godfather." Here's a scene.
|I Know You|
|A one act
play about as many things as I could squeeze into it.
|On Line Horrors|
|I was thinking about doing a series of short
horror stories for the Internet. I wrote this as a sample, but it
was never produced. Anyone interested in giving it a try?
|A Bad Day|
|This really happened to me, back when I was in
college. The world can be a horrible place.
|The older I get, the more I think Prince
Hamlet is a jerk.
|David & Bathsheba|
|A sketch - and an audition.
|A monologue for a person and a cell phone..
|It is what it is. You figure it out.
|Welcome to the Conference Community|
|Life at work in the 21st Century.
|A break from the theater.
|Infinity just goes on and on and on and on and
on and on and on...
|Seeing Red and Feeling Blue|
|How do I know you see the same colors I do?
|The Princess Who Never Farted|
|A fairy tale for children of all ages with
seriously warped minds.
|No Funny Stuff|
|The horrible secret that would drive any man to
|An old-fashioned solstice celebration.
|The Importance of Being Jack|
|Jack Worthing has a Wilde time in Whitechappel
in 1888 - absolutely ripping.
|Political Sketches: Warning - May be offensive to those who aren't Liberal or Left of Liberal|
|I put up a sketch called "The Man Who Got Baghdad Hussein" - which I'd intended to take down after the November '04 election - but I got so many hits on that sketch (thanks to a mention on www.bartcop.com ) that I've decided to keep writing political sketches. Warning: I've stayed true to my left-wing hippie politics ever since the late 1960's - meaning I still think the Vietnam War was a bad idea - so if such an idea irks you, you probably shouldn't click on this site. To those of you who don't approve of my politics, I hope you'll still sample my other work.|
