Tenth Play Accomplished! Also, Got Profiled in GMA News

This was a big week for me! First off, I finished my tenth play yesterday! In the past six years, I’ve written two full-length plays and several one-acts, including three that were produced within the last year since the launch of my production company 68 Productions: “Secrets; Love,” “Kookspeak,” and “Before, After and Always.”

Yesterday I finished a one-act play called “Missing” about a girl who discovers a series of love poems her mother could never give her father, and who believes she’s inherited her mom’s cowardice. We find out, however, that neither mother nor daughter is as weak as she seems.

Earlier this year, I also completed another one-act/short, “As Time Goes On,” which spoofs soap operas and comments on the death of daytime TV, and a full-length comedy called “The Winslow Homicides,” about two psychics–one who sees the past and another who sees the future–who hunt down the serial killer of several world-famous artists.

I’ve been on a writing high, especially after being inspired at STAGEfest at the Loew’s, where “Before, After and Always” made its premiere two weeks ago. Speaking of which, I was profiled today by GMA News Online, a major news source in the Philippines, as a “Pinoy Achiever” for my work as a playwright!

I’m feeling really good about my creative work lately and will hopefully create (and produce!) more very soon.

Also check out my published news and art articles this week. If you’re on my homepage, it’s right below this post.
