My play, “When I Get To Heaven,” has been chosen from over 400 entries as a top 20 finalist in the 15th Annual Lakeshore Players 10-Minute Play Contest – and it doesn’t even have any squirrels in it!
Good luck (and break a leg) to everyone at The Bard’s Town Theatre in Louisville KY for opening night of the Ten-Tucky Festival of Ten Minute Plays that includes my play “PMA and the Beast” – the story of an existential camping trip gone slightly awry. If you liked “Squirrels in a Knothole” … you might like this one too!
Wishing all the best (and break the proverbial leg) to everyone at Artists’ Exchange in Cranston, RI during this last weekend of the One Act Play Festival. I know this has been a trying time for everyone involved in the production. I’m so honored to have “Three Sides” included in this fine lineup of plays. Support local theater!
For anyone in the South Lake Tahoe, CA area, my one-act play “Squirrels” premieres this weekend as part of It’s All Just An Act: Three One-Act Plays at the Duke Theatre on the campus of Lake Tahoe Community College.
My play, “Three Sides,” has been chosen for this year’s 13th Annual One Act Play Festival produced by Artist’s Exchange in Cranston, Rhode Island.
If anyone is in my old home state of North Carolina this weekend, head to The Storefront Theatre in Waxhaw for We Like Short Shorts: A Festival of 10 Minute Plays. My play, “When I Get To Heaven,” about two old curmudgeons trying to find some meaning in a home improvement project gone awry, will be featured along with a full slate of what I am sure are some outstanding plays.
My play, “When I Get To Heaven,” received honorable mention in We Love Short Shorts: A Festival of 10-Minute Plays sponsored by The Storefront Theatre in Waxhaw, North Carolina, and will be presented there as a staged reading in March. Happy New Year!
The Durango Art Center’s 7th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival, featuring my play, “Good Things,” is this weekend – October 13-15.
And here’s another article on the Ten-Tucky Festival, this one posted at Arts-Louisville.com. My favorite line: “The one play that worked in almost every way was Squirrels In A Knothole, by Peter Stavros.”
Here and here are links to a couple of good articles on the Ten-Tucky Festival, entering its final weekend this weekend at the Bard’s Town Theatre. LEO Weekly provides a nice overview of all the plays, noting that “though each piece is laugh-out-loud funny, each piece is also thoughtful and witty.” And Insider Louisville has this to say about my play: Peter Stavros’ entry, “Squirrels in a Knothole,” was the evening’s clear winner. It has solid direction from Nick Hulstine, decent comedic chops from the actors, and a script that works on several different levels. It examined toxic masculinity in a corporate environment and frenemies, all with a touch of nihilism and a subtle hint toward the realities of living in a violent world. And it’s all accomplished in between pretty solid squirrel jokes.
