I’m thrilled to announce that my play The Boat in the Tiger Suit is now available for pre-order from Original Works Publishing. The play, which was produced in August 2013 at The Brick in NYC, is listed at only $6.99, a $5 discount from the normal price. You can pick up a copy here.
From the back cover:
Set on two different boats, The Boat in the Tiger Suit begins at Herman’s funeral, who left his family to join the army (and hide from his wife in the process). As Herman’s wife searches for reasons to make her adult children stay, her son Rene slips off to seduce Gene, the solider who accompanies Herman’s casket. Meanwhile, Rene’s sister April attempts to free herself longtime partner and high school sweetheart, Dave. Tacit allegiances are formed, tried, and tested as the quartet of remaining characters stare into an uncertain future of turbulent waters which may contain tigers.
“I was definitely in awe of the situations [Willenbrink’s] mind created for us. Despite all of the difficult and painful topics, he still manages to write hilarious lines that border the line of shock value and ‘WTF’.”

“a compelling story that pulls the curtain back on the uncomfortable truths that death reveals.”

“Quirky, funny,and poignant all at the same time, he does a fantastic job of blending genres and avoiding the unrealistic sappiness that very often comes with death and funerals.”
