Read All About It

It took me some time to get used to the idea, but I am putting the screenplay for A Sad State of Affairs online for anybody who is curious to be able to read it. It's being hosted at

I have only been hesitant because I don't know if people will read it the same way I hope to present it on film.  But, I suppose if it fails to entertain, then it is my own fault!  Besides, I've seen a lot of unproduced feature film screenplays posted online, so why not? 

A Sad State of Affairs is the story of a guy who tries collect money while standing in the middle of deserted rural intersections.  Incidentally he has enough money to stay at a  small roadside motel, where he becomes smitten with Sandra, a nice young lady who's room is next door to his.  He tries to win her over by letting all the air out of her tires, but Sandra is a complex woman, and it will take a little more effort than that.

By the way, it is a musical (sort of), so you will see a few song lyrics in here, but I don't have any actual recordings finished yet.

So, here you go: 
Download or read the screenplay

(I hope you enjoy it.)
