The story is inspired by the murders of Dartmouth professors Half and Susanne Zantop, January 2001. Two high school boys from Vermont came to their home under false pretenses and murdered them for a hundred dollars in cash. The murders were, of course, notorious. They followed on the heels of the Columbine murders and since then there has been practically an epidemic of senseless murders by young people in the USA. This is a play script about teen murder. There’s a fine line between a dream and reality, well that is until there isn’t… that is until your dreams no longer serve their purpose as a subconscious escape and instead prey on your psyche: creating a world you can neither inhabit nor feel a firm part of. Willy and Noah are young white youths, trying to both define themselves and make a stamp on their society. They dream of joining the American Nazi party. Both boys have dreams – they need something to make them stand out. They dream of doing something big. They dream of it day and night. Until it becomes hard to tell whether they’re awake or dreaming… Both Willy and Noah tread the barrier in this play about the consequences of blurring the lines that separate delusions from actuality. Was their sense of self elevated in their dream state? Were Noah and Willy just plain bored with their reality? Or did they forget where in the world they truly belonged, when they made a choice that would affect them and two German professors? Dreamtime explores what happens when two doubtful aspiring American Nazi youths take certainty and uncertainty into their hands…and the cost of human life in between.

The Fortunate Boy

An unromantic comedy. The ‘fortunate boy’ of the title is Maurice, who was abandoned as a baby by his mother, Rose, a street-singer, discovered by the Constable, and adopted by Bradshaw, the mayor, and his wife Eve, as an adjunct to their various ambitions. Marriage is forced on Maurice and his girlfriend, Belinda – the Constable’s daughter, only because the wedding itself will further the devious ambitions of Bradshaw, and the Constable, and so that Eve, an events organiser, can be seen to be at the peak of her profession. But things go downhill with the re-appearance of Rose, and a sequence of revelation and recognition mean the wedding cannot take place, as Maurice and Belinda are actually brother and sister. Then Maurice proposes a solution which should satisfy all concerned, the event goes ahead, the siblings escape, and while the poor people of the town riot against Bradshaw’s scheme, the parents’ relationships fall apart.

Holiday island

Holiday Island – a British comedy drama, is set in a typical if superior quality holiday hotel in a popular tourist resort, such as Tenerife. A group of newly arrived holiday-makers are just convening in the lobby. They are kitted-out in predictably loud holiday apparel, starting out as a pretty anonymous-looking bunch. As they check-in however, slowly getting to know each other and going about the business of enjoying their holidays, we detect the emergence of their true characters. The cultural and social aspects of their lives though interesting, are not nearly as captivating as their psychological depths. A poignant, yet funny British comedy drama that shows people as they really are when they are away from the comfort of home.

Sassafras Cannon

Sassafras Cannon is a civil-war black comedy play highlighting and satirizing the follies of human nature, at its base. Featuring a set of characters ranging from the offbeat Bloodworth family, holding the reigns to a chocolate manufacturing corporation like the world has never seen, a lampooning version of President Jefferson Davis, a butler who seems a bit, well, evil, and even down to investors from overseas, all whom make their appearances, the show exaggerates America’s time-tested fascination with all characters wild and strange, all while twisting history into it’s own new version, all in a style reminiscing to the days of vaudeville shows and the Ziegfeld Follies. Did you know that cocaine, now considered a drug, was in the original mix of Coca-Cola? Did you know that Jefferson Davis is rumored to have been fleeing from the Union at the time of his capture in his wife’s clothing? These are all facts and rumors that the play uses to perpetuate it’s story and satire, combined with intentional historical inaccuracies and rumors. Attendance at the production is recommended for those with both a sense of humor and a grasp of history.

Snow White and the seven Ugly Sisters

Once upon a time, there was a wicked queen with an evil sidekick of a magic mirror. She was also the most beautiful woman in the world. Unfortunately this didn’t bode well for anyone else who was well, even remotely good looking. When the Princess Snow White blossoms into beauty, and the mirror informs the queen that she is shortly (well next Tuesday to be exact) to move to second place, the queen decides that someone else needs to take drastic action, and she sends her huntsman to kill the princess and bring back her spleen. Since she doesn’t actually know what a spleen is, Snow White and the Huntsman fool the queen, and Snow White runs away into the deep forest. There she meets the seven ugly sisters who kindly take her under their wing when they hear the queen’s evil plan. In the meantime, the mirror has informed the evil queen that actually, Snow white is still alive and kicking in the woods. The Queen decides to do her in with the aid of a magical nuclear cigar, delivered by Royal Mail. The seven ugly sisters leave for work as air hostesses on Goldonian airways, leaving Snow White alone in the cottage with strict instructions not to accept any multicoloured apples from strange old women. Snow white is interrupted by the arrival of the ever so sexy (but boy does he know it) Prince Valiant, who is Revolta’s (one of the ugly sisters) brother. He brings an invitation to his engagement party for his sister, Revolta. Snow White is surprised to find that he not only has no idea who his bride to be actually is, but that she should count herself lucky to have him as a husband! He tries to flirt with her but fails horribly and leaves, but not before accepting a package from Royal Mail for her (The postman is the queen in disguise) containing two nuclear cigars. When the seven sisters arrive back from work, they’re all excited by the package, but when Snow White lights the cigar for Hideosa, it backfires, sending her into a magical sleep. The girls summon Valiant who happily kisses Snow White and wakes her up. He in turn is amazed to find that she actually doesn’t want to marry him on the spot. They are interrupted by the arrival of the queen who has decided to kill Snow herself (properly this time.) The sisters save the day by lighting the other cigar and aiming it at the queen, sending her into a magical sleep. Snow White becomes the new queen of the magical kingdom and they all live happily ever after. A fun non traditional pantomime filled with cleverly adapted Show tunes and witty dialogue by best selling playwright Claire Demmer. This pantomime would suit a typical drama group where the majority of the players are female – but the sisters can just as easily (and humorously be played by males.) Notes: The author will allow workshopping of the script. All of the songs can be substituted at the director’s discretion. The nuclear cigars can be substituted for any other weapon of choice.

Joe's Wood

When I was a little boy, there was a place we knew as Joe’s Woods because of a First World War soldier who had made his home there. Some called him Joe the Navvy, as he had come to our village with a gang of men to create a slip road that would join two roads together. When the work had been completed he had nowhere to go, so he made his home in a disused mine’s powder shed in the local woods, hence the name of Joe’s Woods. His only companions were Peggy, his mongrel dog, and his friend who we knew as Whistling Jim, another solder of that war, and two young girls who were unafraid of Joe and Jim.

Enter Love - a modern musical by Lynn Lupold

Enter Love is set in an international airport, located in a large city. The production consists of a series of encounters—with dialogue and music—that take place between an assortment of couples and individuals at various locations—arrival and departure concourses, waiting lounges, baggage check, a coffee shop, restaurant, observation deck, and the central location, a bar—in the airport. During the course of the production the audience witnesses various manifestations and stages of romantic relationships as the characters pass through on their way from one flight to another, and many times from one delayed, canceled, or redirected journey to another, or the continuation of a relationship full of, as pilots like to say, “Chop.”. “Enter love”….was first on stage at Civic Theatre in Lafayette, IN and then at the Quest Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. This show started out as cabaret production at the Cabaret in Indianapolis, IN and it grew into a more complete musical of vignettes set in an airport which provided opportunity for couples and strangers to interact.
