You’ll notice that I’m not actually in the play. This is by design as well. I want to be freed up to keep writing, so I purposely have left myself out of the day-to-day rehearsals etc. I’m not worried at all – these actors and actresses and director are top notch and very experienced. I can’t wait for you all to see it!

What is “Another Mulligan”?

It’s a story about second chances in life. What if life had do-overs? Would you do things differently? If you could magically wave a wand and erase a bad event from your life, would you? This is a comedy and based on our first reading, it’s going to hopefully get a lot of laughs. Running time should be around 45 minutes.

What Type of Play Is It?

It’s a comedy. Shocking, I know, right? It’s suitable for adults and kids and there are no language / situation issues. Younger kids might get bored, though. I’d recommend it for teens on up.

What’s The Story Behind The Play?

Rick Drumm, Wes Matthias and I actually first met and discussed this story back in 2013. Rick and I had written a play called An American Christmas that was produced in 2004, and we had always wanted to do that again. Alas, life happened and we didn’t get around to it for almost a decade. We finished the original script – initially called “Another Christmas Mulligan” in 2015. At 61 pages, it was set for a length of 75 minutes or so. Last year, the acting troupe I’m part of produced a play for IndyFringe called Go Be Joan. This was written by Nate Adams, another member of our acting troupe. For those that missed last year’s show, you can still see it this year as it’s being produced here locally July 18-28.

When it came time to figure out what to do for IndyFringe this year, I suggested we consider doing Another Mulligan and everyone agreed that was a good idea. The problem was the length – Fringe shows needed to be less than an hour. So, I went to work chopping and editing and got it down to 35 pages of script (down from 61). I think the result is going to be great and I’ve gotten feedback from other actors in the show that it feels much more tight than the original. There were a lot of laughs at the first read-through and I hope you can all enjoy a night of laughter when you come to see the show.

Another interesting tidbit about this show is that most of the situations presented in the play are based on real-life situations. We took things that had happened to us – or those close to us – and adapted those into scenes. The result is pure hilarity. Also – about the artwork. I created it using a program called Canva. It’s quick and easy and I really enjoy working with it. I took the picture at a golf course on Father’s Day. While the play isn’t about golf, it does use the “mulligan” theme all throughout it… so, I decided that it was best to have a golf backdrop.

What Should I Do Next?

BUY TICKETS! It’s a fun show and you’ll be supporting a good cause. And, stay afterward because I’m pretty sure the cast will go out to a local watering hole after each performance 🙂
