A ten-minute play called "Fire and Rain" was just accepted by The 2nd Hand. I'm not sure about a release date yet. It will be online. Todd Dills and the gang at The 2nd Hand have been really good to me over the years.

This was just about the last unpublished play I have. I've got a one act called "Homecoming" (terrible title, I know) and another 10-minute one I cowrote with Chris Fullerton. I haven't written much drama in the last couple years. Maybe I should.

Short plays are a hoot to read. I wonder if they could be performed in a theater? The issue is the set up; changing the sets, costumes, etc. Perhaps you could get real creative, and create 12 ten minute plays, and place them all in the same set, or setting, like a diner, or the library, or a doctor's office. Then just have a few actors playing multiple roles; kind of like how Tuna, Texas shows get done. C.L.BLEDSOE PRESENTS:
A POET'S DOZEN--10 minute forays into the meaning of life, and the meaningless too. Perhaps it could create a whole new theatrical form, kind of like the absurdist plays of the 50's and 60's. Where are the producers, agents, and bankers when you need them?

As far as I understand it, that's pretty much what happens with short plays. I've only had a couple performed, and that was in black box or similar setups.

I just watched the film of "Tuna, Texas" a few weeks ago.
