Here are two contrasting pieces that I continue to perform almost 15 years after they have been written for the show Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind.  Maybe now that the New York Neo Futurists have put them to film, I can let them rest.
Our goal at the Neo Futurists is to write personal material that has insight into what is going on currently in our world and also to simultaneously create a way to emotionally connect with our individual audience members.  And since I have done this for nearly 20 years and the short plays we write change out every few weeks, it has give me plenty of time to fail and to grow.  I have probably created over 350 of these short pieces.  These are not examples of my best live work, often the best work for stage is made only for the live experience of the stage and when brought to another art form, for differing reasons, it just doesn't have the same affect.  It becomes something else.  So these two pieces are more in the category of writings that I thought could be transformed to be something else.  One based more in Tragedy, and one in Comedy.  Which is which will make itself obvious in viewing.
