Brian Dykstra

A PLAY ON WORDS

Seinfeld meets Waiting for Godot in this ferociously witty play on, about and exploding with language. Rusty and Max have been friends since grade school and they've been arguing almost the entire time. Today they're scheming up something big.

CLEAN ALTERNATIVES

A no-holds-barred satire on corporate America about an environmentalist's fight against a toxin-spreading megacorporation. Dykstra takes on corporate narcissism, the meaning of love, the corruption of politics and the elusiveness of enlightenment in this dark-age of the almighty dollar.

HIDING BEHIND COMETS

A suspense-filled psychological thriller about two twins, Troy and Honey, who share an unusually strong bond. One late summer evening, a stranger wanders into their family-owned bar.

SILENCE

Based on a true story, Silence, is the story of a group of “at risk” high school students at a summer arts camp in Fargo, North Dakota. It’s a coming out and coming of age story about self-expression, censorship and growing up.

STANDARDS OF DECENCY SERIES 1

Seven short plays that explore what it means (or what it takes) to offend, to be obscene, and/or to be transgressive.

Yo. I've written plays and poems and performed in things. I've written things you should read. And those things are the things on this website. I've written other things that you should read but aren't yet on this website. I wish I could tell you where to read them, but I can't. Cuz' I don't rightly know. Or wrongly know. Listen, it's all political (unless it isn't) if you're not interested in that, click on some other playwright on this website...they're good. If you are interested in the political, you're in the right place. If you want to know more...google me...I'm on that web in a couple joints. I gots a new play on the way. It's all up and through there. It's a hip-hop play written in the language of hip-hop (so, in other wordz) it's going to be commercially challenged. Oh, well. I make a living acting and writing so who's complaining? It's a great job, theatre. So, check out what you want and ignore the rest. Ciao...(or whatever).
