In the course of my life as a writer, I regularly submit work to different outlets, be it publishers, short stories contests, webzines, and yes, even theatre houses. As expected, I get my fair share of acceptance and rejection letters.
A while back, I received a rejection letter from a theater company for a set of three short plays I wrote. While that somewhat saddened me, I also know it's part and parcel of being a writer.
However, because the plays focus on so narrow a topic, I wasn't quite sure what to do with them - until I realized anyone who reads my blog might find value in the characters or set-up of a short play. Therefore, I'm posting the plays below for anyone who wants to read them, hopefully laugh, and perhaps get inspired. If such is the case, then I will consider my time writing them well-spent. (As these are second drafts, please disregard crazy typo errors.)
