Surprise

In Surprise, Peter is a psychic who can only see two minutes into the future. Unfortunately, all this gives him is the ability to drive Whitney slowly insane.


Surprise has been produced nearly 200 times all over the world.  It’s been seen in the US at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis, and the Kennedy Center as well as many theaters across the country.  It has also been produced in Australia, The Netherlands, Spain, Canada, The Philippines, Brazil, Mexico, Romania, Egypt, South Korea, England, Scotland, India and Peru — often in translation. It’s been published in “2007: Best Ten Minute Plays for 3 Or More Actors” (Smith & Kraus) and Laugh Lines: Short Comic Plays“, (Vintage / Random House).
