I Write Plays


Welcome to my website.  Here you can learn all about me and my writing.  You can request a copy of one of my plays or better yet, arrange to produce one.  Feel free to poke around.  Enjoy!

Very nicely done indeed is the play "Parcheesied," written by John Howie Patterson and astutely directed by Marcus Cato.  The interplay between these three very accomplished actors as they attempt to play the board game Parcheesi is hilarious.

Patterson's skill has always been the ability to create well-defined characters and to develop them consistently throughout a play, and "Nowhere" provides a good example of that skill.  Add to that a keen sense of humor and a very individual way of exploring the absurd, and the result is genuinely amusing and even a little bittersweet.
