Quotes & Highlights

“Eloquently expressed…Slick dialogue…So beguiling …”—SF Weekly
“…Real emotional honesty…Nearly too well executed…”—SF Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle
The playwright “is a scissor sharp observer of the human condition.”—Marin Indendpendent Journal
Sperm Warfare was 2005 Winner of “Best of the SF Fringe Festival, Critic’s Award”


Set in a law firm and a courtroom, Pomp and Circumstance is about the personal trial of a talented yet suppressed young attorney coming to terms with his father, a famous and reluctantly retiring criminal defense lawyer, as they handle their first, and last, court trials. It explores the boundaries between sex and love, religious law and civil law, acting and reality, and parents and their children.

Set in the sample room of an in-vitro fertility clinic, Sperm Warfare takes a hard look at how the biological clock impacts male-female relationships in sometimes role-reversing ways. As a 39-year-old determined wife rubs her frustrated husband the wrong way and a sensuous young nurse makes matters worse, the husband and wife are forced to define themselves anew.
