"Rumpel" Staged Reading
A staged reading of my full-length play, Rumpel, took place November 4, 2018 at The Cat Theatre in Carmel, Indiana.
Rumpel: Is a full-length comedic take on Rumpelstiltskin surrounding Dexter Miller, a professional student and wannabe author living off Mommy and Daddy. Dex’s troubles begin when his girlfriend tells a publishing magnate that he has written a novel. Enter an unlikely ghostwriter to get the job done, but what will it cost Dex to see his dreams fulfilled?
