10/30/13 Derailing the Draft
November has always seemed an odd month to hold NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). We’re just coming off Halloween, preparing the house for the winter months, interrupted by Thanksgiving (which usually can derail even the best habits, eating, writing and otherwise), and the last week is the first official week of holiday shopping. So, it’s […]
6/13/12 Producing the Play
I’ve blogged about and edited a couple of works on theater in the past (see Freytag’s Technique of the Drama and Aristotle’s Poetics), and the theory in those works are useful to the playwright, and to the dramaturge.

About the Author
Brian Triber, a Malden, Massachusetts native, has been writing plays and fiction for over 25 years, and has 15 years experience writing and editing technical manuals in the computer industry. Of his numerous plays, several were produced in Boston and at Cornell University, including his one-act The Gulls' Lament, which received a staged reading at the 1995 Boston Playwrights Platform.
Brian was cofounder of two theater companies: the community theater Mainstayge of Malden, which received a special Judges Award at the New England Theatre Conference (NETC) for its production of Paul Selig's Terminal Bar; and the now-defunct Ubiquity Stage, a small theater company that produced exclusively in Boston. The theater went dark — in the financial black — after 4 years, 15 productions, and garnering numerous positive reviews, and appearances on WBZ's Jordan Rich Show.
He has a summa cum laude degree in Interior Design, and is a theatrical set and lighting designer. He received two NETC lighting design awards and an additional nomination, including the first-ever lighting design award for Next Door Theatre, Revere's 45-minute cutting of the musical Pippin, which he still remembers averaged 3 lighting cues per minute.
He continues to write short-stories and novels from his home. You can read the latest on his mind at his Blog.
About My Work
My favorite theme is that of the extraordinary hidden in the mundane. Dependant on character and theme, my stories tend toward science fiction and urban fantasy with a liberal peppering of horror, but always with an eye on quirky humor and hidden meanings. Many of my protagonists lean toward the classic Everyman, but they benefit from a liberal inclusion of contemporary attitudes and backgrounds.
Please, poke around on the site, read a little, escape a little, and let me know what you think.
