I have been teaching theatre at Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina since 2011, having spent the previous 8 years teaching physical education.  (Weird combo, right?)  When not at work I go out adventuring with my wife Aubrey and our son Rhett who are my absolute favoritest people to be around.  I’m a 6th degree black belt in Isshin-Ryu Karate, and along with my older brother Byron, I own and operate a commercial dojo here in Wilmington. As I write this, An Experiment is the 10th play I’ve had published, and I have really grown to love writing for my kids and now getting to share it with a much larger audience!

For as long as they can remember, Alex and his friends Matt, Chad, and Chelsea have spent Friday nights fighting the undead, casting spells, and rescuing fair maidens with the roll of the dice, a little luck, and a lot of imagination.  This week they have invited a new player, Eddie, to join them.

New One-Act Play

Ethan is a typical high school junior, well ... typical with the exception of the fact that an attack three years ago left him as one of the undead.  Previously discriminated against, zombies (such an ugly word) have been now given the chance to attend public school, with Ethan being chosen as the first openly undead student in his state to do so.  As he chronicles his journey on YouTube, Ethan learns the ins and outs of fitting in when you're obviously...
