It's delightful for a playwright to see his/her work on stage. It's also a joy to see the work in print. I have been very fortunate to have had twenty of my plays published. Just as Charles Dickens believed that he had a favorite "literary child" (he was especially fond of David Copperfield), I too feel that I have a personal favorite among my collection of silly little stage plays: Promedy (currently available at Eldridge Plays.)
Here's the premise: The student body leaders at Lowzund High bicker and argue about various prom themes. They finally decide to combine all of their ideas into one to create a medieval-futuristic-under-the-sea dance. But when self-proclaimed drama-geek, Dante Allegro, is rejected by the arrogant, text-messaging-obsessed cheerleader, he uses his persuasive abilities to cancel the whole event.
Writing plays for young people is a wonderful way to begin your writing career. Writing a play is less time consuming than a novel, and it's more likely to be sold (especially when you compare it to the screenwriting trade).
