Playwright

Walter Thinnes

My short play "2020 - A PERFECT YEAR FOR MAGICAL THINKING" ​was performed and streamed as part of  the Old Library Theatre's 10th Annual One Act Play Festival in Fair Lawn, New Jersey in February. It was terrific and creatively directed by Lisa Dascoli. 

My short play "Happy Birthday, Leonard" was  part of the Barrington Stage Company 10th Annual 10x10 New Play Festival and streamed online.  ​Barrington Stage is a major regional theatre and they did a wonderful job.  

News about my scripts so far in 2021...

My most recent short play, CELEBRITY DIVORCE, has been placed on the "Shortlist" of the Short+Sweet Theatre Festival in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

This essentially means it is a finalist for this summer short play festival.  Festival directors will select what plays they wish to present from the list.
