Interview with Davy Rothbart



HATCH is semi-finalist for O'Neill National Playwrights Conference & AACT NewPlayFest

Hatch Art

Hatch, my latest play, was a selected as a semi-finalist for the AACT NewPlayFest (2017) and Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference (2014).

The play follows one family's struggle with loss, grief, and what it means to die with dignity. If you're interested in reading, developing, or producing the play, please contact me here.


Praise for TWO SPOONS

Creative Loafing, Tampa Bay:

"Mercurio's dialogue is so polished that you can't help but enjoy it for its efficiency and intelligence. You also have to like his many story-telling devices."

HX, New York City:

"Peter Mercurio’s splendid new comedy about a soon-to-be-wed gay couple shows us that with a little ingenuity, even the aphorisms of the old American sage Ben Franklin can avail us! I give Two Spoons two thumbs way up!"

If you're interested in reading or producing TWO SPOONS, please contact me here.

Follow Pete on social media?

Links to my social media pages used to be here. But after the 2016 election, I decided to detatch from the cesspool of disheartening fake news and useless clickbait. Instead, I created a social media alternative site—aka blog—to post similar useless stuff to what I would've posted on Facebook. Click BLOG button in navigation menu or go there now.

(Update: I've recently gone back on Facebook, Twitter, and antidepressants.)
