Home is where the heart is…

Home is a short, 11-page script that follows shy Margot and confident Mindy. Think of the beautiful, short films before Disney/Pixar features at the movie theater. Home is inspired by For the Birds, Feast, Lava, The Blue Umbrella, etc.

While I have moved, happily, into the world of the short story, screenwriting remains my biggest passion. And Disney? Well, Disney is my heart. This piece is my love letter to the geniuses at Pixar and Disney Animation. I would argue that Disney is full of the best storytellers working today. In short, their work ignites audiences and crafts magic.

Also…they should totally hire me.

Enjoy, folks.

Out and Away

Below is an excerpt from my play Out and Away (hey, that rhymed).

Rose, an elderly woman, has lost her husband, her son, and her will to live. One night, a mysterious man comes to her door. He knows impossible things about Rose and tells her he has come to “take her away.”

This man could be death; this man could be a figment of Rose’s troubled imagination. In the end, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that Rose, as a result of talking to this man, discovers that she might have something to live for.

The attached scene was performed by two professional Dublin-based actors in 2015. A complete honor.
