From Off-Broadway

Winner! Young Playwrights Festival sponsored by the Dramatists Guild
Sparks in the Park is about a neurotic teenager trying to write a play for The New York Young Playwrights Festival. The young writer can't see that his own relationships are far more interesting than his lame efforts at stagecraft: ridiculous attempts to emulate talented writers like Woody Allen, Sam Shepherd and, alas!, Shakespeare. The play was, in fact, written by a neurotic teenager and entered in the New York Young Playwrights Festival (which it won).

Sparks in the Park premiered at Playwrights Horizons theatre on September 15th, 1987 and ran for 30 performances as part of the New York Young Playwrights Festival.
