Blue Moon Plays is developing a venue for plays destined for the professional and regional theater market place. The plays that will find a fit with Blue Moon are 

  • Award-winning scripts that have had significant productions at Off-Off- Broadway or Regional Theaters or
  • Scripts that have been workshopped and are looking for further development

Be the first to find the next new hit to find legs in the dramatic community.  

We will still offer the same quality of scripts and writers as we always have during this transition. Keep in touch. If you wish to be informed when our new site is ready to open, please sign up for our newsletter. We promise not to pester you more than once a month. But we will be sending information on new plays and offering discounts or freebies for your theater.  

HaveScripts/Blue Moon Plays will also be hosting 2 blogs, one which will allow you to learn about and even communicate with the writers, many of whom are actors and directors. The other will be tips, suggestions and links to help make your next production your best.

As we make this transition, you can still reach us at either site. Our latest release, Distant Survivors, is listed above.

Distant Surviors
by June Prager
based on the poetry of
William Heyen

E-copies available, sent within 24 hours via e-mail.  Postage included in cost of print copy.

Distant Survivors was conceived and adapted for the stage by director June Prager, based on Holocaust poetry by William Heyen. In this poetic drama, we see the past through the eyes of a German-American who looks back on his ancestral heritage and tries to come to terms with it.

Given the rise of anti-Semitism across the globe and the increase of attacks, verbal and physical, against Jews as well as other ethnic groups, we cannot afford to forget. In this poetic drama, we see the past through the eyes of a German-American who looks back on his ancestral heritage and tries to come to terms with it.

Dakota Heirlooms
Stories of the Past
Compiled and Edited 
by Molly Barari

Dakota Heirlooms is a collection 
of  true stories from senior citizens 
living in the Black Hills of South 
Dakota. The anthology features 
stories about love, stories about
 hope, and stories about 
perseverance. There are
 charming “slices of life” 
anecdotes mixed with harrowing 
tales surrounding major historical events, such as the Great Depression, Midwest blizzards, and the Black Hills Flood of 1972—which killed 238 and injured over 3,000. There are personal histories spanning from childhood to adulthood; tales of families migrating to the expansive region originally known as Dakota Territory; and tales of how the South Dakota landscape and culture captured the hearts of those who put down roots here. I am honored to present this superb collection of stories, so that you may smile, laugh and maybe even shed a tear as you immerse yourselves in the lives of these authors.

NEW!!!  Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent 
A radio-noir parody
Matthew Konkel

In this radio-noir, private detective parody, Jake Revolver fights against conspiracy, double cross and self-reference to uncover the killer of his own narrator. Meant to be performed as the premiere episode of a nineteen-forties live radio broadcast complete with foley artistry and on-stage standup microphones, Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent is packed with puns, play on words, oodles of self-referential absurdity (and Beatles references?)
