What's new with Bob

SEPTEMBER, 2017

BOB PLACES UNPRECEDENTED 5 PLAYS IN AUSTIN COMPETITION!
In the inaugural playwriting competition at the prestigious Austin Film Festival
Screenwriting and Playwriting Competition for 2017, Bob submitted five of his
recently-produced plays. ALL FIVE PLAYS were judged to move on to the Second
Round of the competition! The blind judging of the competition means that different
readers were assigned to read separate plays and judge them on a slate of criteria that

includes plot, characterization, dialogue, structure, theme, and more. Each reader
gives the plays they read a score, and the top 20% of the scoring plays move on
to the next round. The fact that ALL FIVE of Bob's plays moved on to the next round is
quite an achievement for one writer.

ALMOST END OF THE END FOREVER Makes Broadway Black List!

Bob was notified this month that his intelligent and comic fantasy, THE ALMOST END OF THE END FOREVER,
was chosen for this year's Broadway Black List, producer Ken Davenport's list of the Top 10 Unproduced Plays
of 2016. The play revolves around the iconic characters of Life and Death and what happens when Death
decides that he doesn't want to continue handling the job he's had since the beginning of time. The Broadway
Black List is sent to all producers, theaters, and associated personnel in the hopes that it will find a home for
production. Davenport has become a force in Broadway production over the past several years, producing
such hits as "Godspell", "It's Only A Play", "Kinky Boots", and "Spring Awakening", among others. He was also
just designated sole representative in North America for all of Andrew Lloyd Webber's properties here. "Ken's
always been supportive of my writing," Bob said, "and I'm honored that he's included my play on this year's Black List."

THE RETURN Opens November 1st

Bob's newest play, THE RETURN, opens it's World Premiere at the Red Barn Theatre in Key West, FL
on November 1st. Produced by Bob's TheatreXP, and directed by him, the play will run 3 weeks. It stars a
solid group of actors who have appeared in Bob's previous plays, including Tony Konrath,
Tom Murtha, Karl M. Stahl, Melody G. Moore, and Vanessa McCaffrey.

The play centers on venerable WNN news anchor David Steele, who has been the most trusted name in
television news for over 35 years. But on this particular night, David announces live on the air
that he is, in fact, not who he has purported to be, but is actually the returned Jesus Christ of
Nazareth (yes, THAT Jesus Christ). Needless to say, all hell breaks loose....so to speak...

Look for the script of THE RETURN to be posted on this website once the World Premiere run has
closed.
