“The perfect coffee table book if you don’t have a coffee table.” —Fred Stroppel
Fred Stroppel has been our head writer and story editor on Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! for the past several years, but cartoons is only his day job. One of the reasons he not only trained as a playwright but continues to write plays in every spare minute he has.
Now Fred’s published his first Kindle collection of one act theatre pieces, Christmas Cocktails: A Festive Collection of Holiday Plays. You should pick it up for the holidays. It’s described thusly:
“A collection of hilarious one-act plays dealing with the most wonderful time of the year. There’s the usual Christmas joy here, but also the frustration, the pomposity, the noise, the sadness, the sexiness, and the insanity that make this holiday so memorable. From an engagement scene at Rockefeller Center to a kids’ rehearsal of “The Nutcracker” to a lonely moment on Christmas Eve, CHRISTMAS COCKTAILS provides a kaleidoscopic comic survey of the many facets and follies attending our favorite season.”
Notice “the frustration, the pomposity, the noise, the sadness, the sexiness, and the insanity.” Wubbzy aside, it’s not for the kiddies.
Check it out, you’ll enjoy Fred’s writing here easily as much as the jokes in Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!
