My play, “When I Get To Heaven,” received honorable mention in We Love Short Shorts: A Festival of 10-Minute Plays sponsored by The Storefront Theatre in Waxhaw, North Carolina, and will be presented there as a staged reading in March. Happy New Year!
My short story, “All Those Devils,” has been selected to appear in Dime Store Review‘s print edition, Volume 2, Issue 3, 2017, soon to be available on Amazon.
Because I ran the annual 5K Santa Sprint today, I am re-posting a piece, “The Old Man and the Santa Sprint,” that I wrote about my experience in this supposed fun-run a couple years ago – and how dare anyone call me an old man! Happy Holidays!
My short story, “Bumps,” which first appeared in 2 Elizabeths last year, has just been republished in the Fall 2017 issue of Razor Lit Mag as a finalist in the Fiction Open Contest. Check it out – the layout of this magazine is great, as are the other stories! – along with the “Behind the Razor” feature that follows, where I provide some insight into what inspired me to write this piece, another in my collection of “Sadie Stories.”
My short story – “3:45” – is now available for FREE at Fixional.
The Durango Art Center’s 7th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival, featuring my play, “Good Things,” is this weekend – October 13-15.
My short story, “All Those Devils,” is live now at Dime Show Review. This is a companion piece to “Three in the Morning and You Don’t Smoke Anymore” and “3:45” and part of a larger collection I’m working on. Happy Friday!
And here’s another article on the Ten-Tucky Festival, this one posted at Arts-Louisville.com. My favorite line: “The one play that worked in almost every way was Squirrels In A Knothole, by Peter Stavros.”
Here and here are links to a couple of good articles on the Ten-Tucky Festival, entering its final weekend this weekend at the Bard’s Town Theatre. LEO Weekly provides a nice overview of all the plays, noting that “though each piece is laugh-out-loud funny, each piece is also thoughtful and witty.” And Insider Louisville has this to say about my play: Peter Stavros’ entry, “Squirrels in a Knothole,” was the evening’s clear winner. It has solid direction from Nick Hulstine, decent comedic chops from the actors, and a script that works on several different levels. It examined toxic masculinity in a corporate environment and frenemies, all with a touch of nihilism and a subtle hint toward the realities of living in a violent world. And it’s all accomplished in between pretty solid squirrel jokes.
