The Ten Play Project

My birthday gift to myself this year: a challenge to write ten full-length plays until my next birthday.

Twelve months, ten plays, one Alexander who's wondering why I did this to myself.

A semi-existential quasi-historical comedy

about the 1761 Danish expedition to Arabia Felix

not losing hope

A two-person love story

told through multiple drafts of a ten-minute play

three

frances makes history

A high school dramedy

based loosely on the James Garfield assassination

on Mars

five

mixed up in sky

An experimental poem-play

about what it means to be saved

six

A sort-of sequel to Frances Makes History,

about music and moving on
