Pint-Sized Plays – Get Involved!

About a week ago, I blogged about the launch of Pint-Sized Plays in Portsmouth, NH, which opened with a play co-written by me.


Well, now I’m back to tell you that Pint-Sized Plays was a huge success and has found a permanent home in the red door bar and lounge.

What’s more, they are keen to hear from you with your ideas for short performance pieces that could form part of the Pint-Sized Plays 2015 line-up. You don’t have to be in Portsmouth to take part but if you are, they are having a series of informal ideas sessions which sound like a great way to meet new creative-types.

Check their out the Pint-Sized Plays website for more info and sign up for the ideas session via their Facebook page. They have a great team of writers, producers, directors and actors working on this and it’s a brilliant opportunity for people to get involved with innovative, grassroots theater and potentially see your own work onstage. I certainly plan to write for them again in future – why not give it a go yourself?

Well, that’s all for today. TTFN everybody, and DFTBA!


This Is James: Pint-Sized Plays

So, I’ve just learned that today, Tuesday November 11 2014 is the launch of Pint-Sized Plays, a monthly series that showcases new short-form performance work in Portsmouth, New Hampshire!

The first performance is of a piece called This Is James, which includes some of my writing. Now I have to be honest, I originally wrote for this a long time ago and I have completely forgotten what I produced. Moreover, it was a collaborative project and I am not sure how much of my work will be reflected in the final performance. I do know, however, that the people producing Pint-Sized Plays are a very talented bunch indeed, so it’s bound to be a great night no matter what.

Unfortunately, Chicago to New Hampshire is a bit of a trek, so I won’t able to attend, but I would encourage anybody in the Portsmouth region to go along. Outside of my meager involvement, Pint-Sized Plays looks like a really great happening for both lovers and creators of theater. I’ll definitely be following their development and I wish them a whole load of luck for tonight!
