C.P. Stancich began writing comedies for the stage in the early 1990s. His full-length, one-act and ten-minute pieces have been produced in England, Australia, Canada and throughout the U.S., and garnered national awards. His comedy JUST ONE ABIDING DEARTH took top honors at the Pittsburgh New Works Festival, the Great Platte River Festival, and the Little Theater of Alexandria National Competition. In the late 1990s theater acquaintances asked him to try his hand at mysteries and then youth theater pieces. His first mystery, SHERLOCK HOLMES & THE DOOM of DEVILSMOOR, has led to two subsequent Sherlock Holmes plays: THE SPINSTERS of BLACKMEAD, and JOHN WATSON’S BODY. In October 2014, his fourth Sherlock play ASSASSINS AT SEA, will premier in California, while his fifth Sherlock, MASTERS OF CRIME will premier in Colorado. His performance piece for young actors, HIGHLY THEATRICAL TERMS, has led to a companion play, CHARACTER REFERENCES.
