Attack of the Mindless Alien Hosts from Outer Space!
Attack of the Mindless Alien Hosts from Outer Space! is a sci-fi/horror spoof I wrote with Tom Merritt in the spring of 1999. I’d just quit my job and was watching old horror movies, wondering what to do with my life when … eureka! AotMAHfOS! was first produced by my Insomnia Theater Company at The Vortex in Austin, TX sometime in the summer of 1999.
Showdown at Busted Butte
Showdown at Busted Butte is a western comedy first produced in November of 1999 at the Vortex. The script for that production was written hurriedly, and as a result kind of sucked. My troupe for that production included about a half dozen extremely talented improv comedians, so we ended up performing a slightly different version of the show each night. In 2002 I sat down to write the versions of the play I’d intended to write in the first place, and incorporated the best of the improv material.
