    "Flowers in the Desert" Full Length Drama - 7 w 2 m  A full length play scripts about a group home for troubled girls isolated in the desert. Ma and Sarge watch over the girls and try to guide the teens to make better decisions for their lives, but it proves to be as challenging as growing flowers in the desert. Background on the play, I often get questions about this play, so here is a little bit on the inspiration for the play: 
"Flowers in the Desert" is based on my grandparents experiences running a group home for troubled youth. The characters in the script, especially Ma and Sarge, are based on real people and some of the moments in the script are based on stories they told me. Their group home was in Washington State and they worked with youth in the 1960s and 70s. I started writing this play in the 1990s and have changes the time period and setting many times from Washington to Idaho to New Mexico and from the 70s to the present. I don't think the setting or time period is important; honoring these amazing people who had a major impact on my life matters more. This is one of my favorite plays I've written because of that special connection to my grandparents. I hope this play keeps their memory alive and captures the spirit of how amazing they were.
