SALT LAKE CITY — The Noose is a piece of historical fiction inspired by an actual 1957 Salt Lake City police case. April, a young African-American resident of Salt Lake, is accused not only of murder, but also of being a lesbian—accusations which seem to be culturally equal in severity. In the plot, designed to make the straight, male policeman appear as the ultimate villain, the female characters get their victory in the form of a homicide via piano wire, complete with a reference to Adolf Hitler. Early in this original script by playwright Bryan Stubbles, the narrator Sappho expresses a...Read More
SALT LAKE CITY — A father thought he sat at the side of the road, arms flung wide around the trunk of a large oak tree. In reality he was on a hypnotist’s stage and under the hypnotist’s control—and control was something the Father had been lacking since his daughter had been accidentally hit by a car.

The two actors on stage in An Oak Tree, Barrett Ogden and Davey Morrison...Read More
CEDAR CITY — Eugene, a young man of nearly fifteen, shares a home with not only his parents and brother, but with an aunt and two cousins as well.

His father Jack has lost both his second job and his health, and as World War II looms just...Read More
CEDAR CITY — I’ve probably spoken it as frequently as I’ve heard it, the flippant cliche’ “if walls could talk.” As I ponder it now, I wonder to which walls I would be most inclined to lend an ear. Would I want to hear an epic tale following a set of characters over a long period of time? Or would I prefer a collection of short stories, a glimpse into a single moment with little opportunity for context or resolution? I think that the deciding factor may be how well the wall could spin the story because, when told...Read More
CEDAR CITY — Imagine sitting in a living room watching the mundane, everyday conversations that move a family through a typical summer. Such moments are easy to picture and are so familiar that they have become the iconic stuff of late night reruns. But without a conscious storyboard to dictate conflict or climax, without an instrumental track to manipulate emotion, without sound effects to punctuate or a live studio audience to lull one into the comfortable act of laughing along, even the best scripted conversation runs the risk of becoming nothing but common. On Golden Pond takes place in the...Read More
