What people are saying about Short Plays by the Dozen:
- Beginning a new career in playwriting after turning 80 doesn’t compute, but Arthur defies the odds. His plays are funny, optimistic and a joy to watch. Howard Millman, former Producing Artistic Director, Asolo Theatre, Sarasota, Florida
- Dedication and an unstoppable drive to create meaningful theatrical moments are not at every playwright’s disposal, but Art Keyser has these tools and more. If you’ll forgive the obvious pun, we are fortunate theatergoers when Art creates Art! Jeffery Kin, Artistic Director, The Players Theatre, Sarasota, Florida
- Arthur’s successes as a playwright, which first emerged in his eighties, are a wonderful testament to the truth that a passion for the craft knows no age and creative juices can continue to flow indefinitely. Gary Garrison, playwright, author, teacher, and Executive Director, Creative Affairs of the Dramatists Guild of America
- I just finished reading “Short Plays by the Dozen” by Arthur Keyser and I really enjoyed them. They are so clever with many surprising endings. I can’t wait to stage every one of them!
