Hello. Some popular short scripts of mine are printed here,
along with information about a couple of full-length plays or nonfiction projects.
For performance use, naturally you'll need to contact me for
permission; same thing, for publication or reprinting. I'm trusting that you'll follow this simple request. You
can reach me at Cyn@CynCooperWriter.net
Apologies in advance for any glitches in formatting.
PS I sign most scripts: Cynthia L. Cooper. Friends call me Cindy or sometimes just Cyn.
