A new, full-length play.
I’m already waste deep in the production of this show. I’m working with the actors on character development right now, and I must say that I’m very pleased with how the characters need to be formed. There’s a lot of substance here for interpretation and a lot of underlying themes and motivations to think about for both an actor and director.
The initial reactions from the actors is extremely positive. They are really excited to see how all of this is going to be put together, and so am I. It really is a privilege to be able to write and produce one’s own work. I know I won’t always have an avenue for such creative freedom, but I’m cherishing it now. Below is the play’s blurb. If you know anyone who produces plays at any level, please ask them to check it out. Thanks!

A witch who covets the pool. A crazed woman who controls it. A princess who wants to marry her prince. A cobbler who wants to marry off his daughters. A baker who keeps a deep secret. A blind beggar who sees better than most.
Set off on a magical journey to discover the secrets of the magic pool. A witch tempts the king’s exiled brother, Cane, with a drop of the magic water in order to use him to break the curse of the caretaker of the pool. Cane’s plot to capture the water puts him at odds with the prince of the Northern Kingdom, the princess he intends to marry, and the unlikely residents of the village of Kidron. But when the witch comes calling, there’s more than just Cane to worry about.
With a wonderful cast of thirteen unforgettable characters, “The Secrets of the Magic Pool” will delight audiences of all ages with its witty dialogue, intense dramatic scenes, and emotional impact while exploring universal themes of family, courage, temptation, love, and sacrifice.
