Shopping Cart
Grandpa Santa

A short screenplay with very little dialogue. The story follows a man purchasing items at a local Walmart. What he plans to do with these items is anybody's guess. 


A Short, dialogue heavy screenplay set in one location. When Covid-19 hits the North Pole, 2 neurotic elves must save Christmas remotely.


A screenplay for a pilot episode of television adapted from my full length play of the same title. 



Thank god, you found me. I'm a deleted poem. I guess he thought he came up with more impressive stuff than me. Personally, I think I'm an alright poem. Better than that stupid gamebook. Who is going to have time to play that? It's like a million pages. I'm interactive too... and stuff. I begged him not to delete me but he kept going on about "streamlining" and "rule of 3s"  and "killing darlings." Well, this Darling ain't goin' down so easily! I'm a survivor! It's one of my themes, you know, since I'm a break up poem.  He'll see, I'll be the talk of the literary town! I'll be the poem that makes him a laurate. Yeah! Some day he'll see! He'll want me back! Anyway, if you're interested, here's where you can read me. Go on. Click. I'm underlined, what are you waiting for. Click away. And then, when you see how great I am, email that bastard RJ and tell him to put me back on the goddamn portfolio.

I got deleted                                                                                        from the   portfolio
