I’m proud to be a part of a talented group of playwrights called LIZARD CLAW PLAYWRIGHTS. Here’s a bit about the Claw:

LIZARD CLAW is a band of scaly playwrights who issue absurdly difficult playwriting challenges to each other on a regular basis, then submit and evaluate their entries anonymously. The plays that emerge are theatrical, inventive, and provocative. These tough-skinned playwrights, many of whom met at the Kennedy Center in 2007, are hatching plays in cities all across the country, including Minneapolis, Boston, NY, Baltimore, Portland, Los Angeles, New Haven, and Washington, DC.

Our most recent challenge was put forth by the lovely and talented Kate Tarker (who happens to be on her way to study with Paula Vogel next fall at Yale). The challenge was to write a screenplay in three pages with two characters. That’s it.

Kate then worked her magic and produced and directed each script submitted.

And here’s what Ms. Tarker did with my quirky little script, WAFFLES…
