“Astonishing!  THE DONUT SHOP was the first play I have ever read and I literally could not put it down!  It was such an easy read, time flew by! Now I can’t stop reading Carl’s plays. After THE DONUT SHOP, I read four more. Then I went back and re-read all of them again…each time learning more and growing more.

-Jacqueline Peterson President of S.O.A.R: Sharing Opportunities Assisting Recovery ( Natural Disaster Support for Victims)

“If I had read THE DONUT SHOP when I was young, it would have been a godsend. I struggled with bulimia in high school and during my first two years of college. Having a resource that discussed eating disorders in an entertaining format such as this play brings issues to the forefront. It would have helped me to learn to love myself. The play is a creative way to address the awkward emotionality of those who suffer with eating disorders.”

-Blythe Metz-Mandmets: Chef & Food Nutritionalist

“I wish both THE DONUT SHOP & FLY EAGLES FLY were required reading in all high schools and colleges. I LOVED BOTH!!! Super-fun and super-easy to read, an absolute pleasure. I am excited to support something so important to the world and the industry. So many in need will benefit from the funding that these plays will create, I am proud to support this goodness.”

-Katrina Bronson, Daughter of Charles Bronson & Mother of Charlie, 12 years old and Autistic.

"I recommend reading ‘An Act of Kindness in the BU’ for college students as a tool for balance. I’ve never read a play like this. It was more like an experience than reading. It was easy to comprehend and connect to. I felt a sense of growth after reading ‘An Act of Kindness in the BU’. I’ve read Shakespeare for school, but never appreciated a play like this. The way it is written is very modern, and references social issues that are relevant right now. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress and anxiety of college pressures; when reading this play it reminds us that we are not alone, and there are support
systems of people who can help you."

Rin Takahashi Junior, International Student, Pepperdine University

"It is so profoundly important that everything we do, everything we absorb have a healing affect, especially in today’s climate as the world changes at a frenetic speed. “Act Of Kindness” was such a refreshing read with life lessons woven into the fabric of the play. It reminded me of the bedtime stories that I would improvise for my daughter, intentionally creating hidden gems that hopefully taught her life lessons that would nourish her subconscious. Even at 28 years old, she still remembers them. Hey, that was my intention. I hope these plays become an indelible part of every reading list for kids and young adults. What a gift of healing that would be."

Kudison Kai, Recording Artist & Backing Vocalist for Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan, Elton John, Mary J. Blige, Joe Cocker


"This play is a life-saver for so many who struggle with suicidal thoughts, Bi-Polar Disorder and simply feeling... Alone. Infused with insights, innuendo and humor, ALONE IN MY HEAD empowers those grappling with the paralyzing insecurities caused by mental health struggles."

Barbara Burke, Journalist

“I love the interweaving factors of humor and drama, which create seamless beats within the story, I kept wanting to know what will happen next! The characters of KENNY & DIANE are easy to relate to and easy to become sympathetic towards - both of their perspectives being immediately ascertainable and important.”
