Stone Keeper is a verse dialogue between Stone Keeper and her daughter, and the great pain of losing a golden son. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, a twopart 11 Act verse play, follows young Daniel’s journey into ancient Babylon where he meets prophets, Imams, and Rabbis; after the hanging of a king, he soon returns home to his Father’s Forest to share his experiences with his friends. Charmed Like a Snake, I’m Sure is a traditional play about fictional characters and events between July and Christmas, 2001 at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), when Dr. Mysteria tries to uncover the reason her superiors are editing out Usama Bin Ladin’s location from her reports. The mystery has a surprise ending, after which Dr. Mysteria is ordered to follow a dangerous mission.
