365 (1 minute plays )PLAYS BY J. NICOLE BROOKS
In 2010 J. Nicole Brooks author of 3 plays decided to use her unemployed time wisely. She decided to write a play a minute until the world changed. On March 27, 2010 Ms. Brooks was awarded the Pulitser Award for Writing. Yes, the Pulitser. She is changing the world.

JOE SIXX PACK, SOCIALIST TRUCKER
Lights up on a greasy spoon diner. A mixture of customers. Cops, black ladies with church hats, yuppies, truck drivers, hip hop posers etc., Ambient cafe noises fill the air.

JOE SIXX PACK

I hope that bitch chokes on a moose burger.
Well listen, I'd love to share more plays with you, but I have to have my photo shoot with Dame Judy Dench & Lynn Nottage. Because I am saving the world. One key stroke at a time.
