Plays in a Day - Playwright #5
Twenty-four hour play writer from 2000 returns to write for Plays in a Day!
J. J. Steinfeld is an award-winning fiction writer, poet, and playwright who lives hidden away on Prince Edward Island, where he is patiently waiting for Godot’s arrival and a phone call from Kafka. While waiting, he has published fourteen books, including Our Hero in the Cradle of Confederation (Novel, Pottersfield Press), Anton Chekhov Was Never in Charlottetown (Stories, Gaspereau Press), Would You Hide Me? (Stories, Gaspereau Press), Misshapenness (Poetry, Ekstasis Editions), and A Glass Shard and Memory (Stories, Recliner Books.) Over forty of his one-act plays and a handful of full-length plays have been performed in Canada and the United States, including the full-length plays The Franz Kafka Therapy Session, The Golden Age of Monsters, and A Television-Watching Artist, and the one-act plays The Waiting Ends, No End in Sight, Laugh for Sanity, and Freesias in Whiskey.
J.J. Steinfeld participated in a similar one-day theatrical event as part of the (then) PEI Festival of the Arts in 2000 for which he wrote Out-of-This-World Retrieval Procedures Incorporated.
