Gary is an accomplished playwright with several full-length and one-act plays already developed, and several more underway. His plays have been produced a dozen times, including “Happy Anniversary” at Serendipity Players, “PS, I Love Your Daughter” at North End Players and CoHo Theater in Portland, “Mama vs. The Mob” at Magenta Theater and “Murder at the Barracks” at Ft. Vancouver, WA.
His most recent play, a ten-minute comedy called “Papacino’s,” took the stage on Saturday, January 24, at Hipbone Studio (1847 E. Burnside, Portland) as part of “PDX Presents: Daisy Dukes Shorts Night,” directed by Dave Chapman, as part of the 2015 Fertile Ground Festival of New Work.
In addition to his own scripts, Gary writes, ghost-writes, and edits scripts. He specializes in tight, realistic dialogue involving sharply drawn, interesting characters in complex relationships.
Until it’s performed, it’s not yet a play – it ‘s just a script.
Gary believes that a play will be most successful when the creative talents of the playwright are joined with those of the director, actors, producer and tech crew. Each needs the creative freedom to contribute depth to the characters, environment and relationships envisioned in the play. Gary is happiest when he can hand the script off to a dynamic team capable of staging a production without interference substantial oversight from the playwright.
