Twas the Night Before Bah-Humbug was inspired by the Charles Dicken’s classic The Christmas Carol but it has a modern twist. Preston is a teenage boy who hates the Christmas season, and no one knows the reason why. He’s rude; he’s mean, and he’s everything in between! Later, he discovers that he is the modern-day Scrooge and meets a few festive holiday characters who take him on a whimsical journey of self-discovery. Will Preston ever learn his lesson that it’s wrong to be bitter during the holiday season? Or will he forever be a Scrooge?

The Gay Roommate is a Dramedy about two roommates who are at odds because they come from two different worlds. One roommate is straight, and the other roommate is gay. The play touches on themes of tolerance, homophobia, self-acceptance, friendship, and personal growth. Will these two roommates find common ground, or will they stay at odds?
Before COVID-19 restrictions, I was working with VSU NAACP, Gender's Sexuality Alliance (GSA), & The Student Diversity & Inclusion group to do a staged reading of my most recent play The Gay Roommate in April 2020. Unfortunately, The staged reading was canceled. But, in June of 2020, The cast and crew of the Gay Roommate did a virtual reading of the play.
