ON HOLD: the MYTH of Male Maturity

Maturity is not earned.  It is not genetically pre-determined.  It is not a product of upbringing or environment.  In fact, as far as guys are concerned, it isn’t anything at all.  At least, it’s not something to get in the way of having a good time.  We’re here for a reason…or not…but regardless, there are a few basic facts that you can take to the bank:

A nose is a very convenient place to park a finger.  But never do that in traffic while you’re text messaging.

Most food can be eaten if dropped on the floor and retrieved within 5 seconds (long count).  Blowing off the floor stuff is optional.

If your father seems mature, it’s because he needs to be that way in front of you.  But it’s better if he’s not.

Your experiences do matter.  They inform you.  But they don’t have to ruin your fun.  Take for example…well, that’s what the play is about.

Performance dates in Los Angeles have not been set yet, but when they are set, this website will carry discount tickets for the limited run.

Excerpt from ON HOLD


Within these pages, you will find a true example of  a person with ADD.

This is an eclectic mix of original plays, short stories, novels,
monologues, and self-help books.

The plays and monologues are available for perusal and rent,
for regional theatre, community theatre, or schools.
The monologues are especially good for schools.

I am also an actor, director, and teacher, so you can
contact me if you need a little help or counseling with the plays.

The books and stories are available for perusal and purchase.

I am also available to help you with writing and publishing questions.

The one-person show, ON HOLD: The MYTH of Male Maturity
will have its west coast premier soon –
the word “soon” being a relative term, maybe “soonish” is a better word.

I hope you find something here that touches you.
