Hey hive mind, should I sue?

I was promised a fair sum of money to write a play for a well-known cultural institution in San Diego. I delivered and, a short time later, there was a board meeting in which everything changed. The program was canceled and, while there was a promise to get the playwrights paid, no such thing has happened.

My question is: should I bother with trying to collect?

Why Plays About Love

Kevin Six's Plays About Love

My plays are about what strong, smart, funny people do with the powerful emotion called love. Some fight it (The Rules of Engagement), some negotiate (Love Negotiated), some miss out (The Art of Love), and some come to accept it (Patsy Presley and the Patron Saints of Swing). But all of my characters do these things in funny, touching and entertaining ways. I hope you like my stuff.


Full Length Plays

Love Negotiated
Cast: 4 W, 4 M
This hilarious comedy is about love, except no one knows what love is. Some try, some succeed, some fail but all are trying to negotiate love amongst lawyers, exes, pre-nuptial agreements, post-nups and a lot of fear. Keep an eye out for details on a new publisher in 2012.

The Rules of Engagement
Cast: 7 W, 2 M
This play serves up several opportunities for women and especially women in stage combat. Follow Libby/Presta as she traverses the states of woman from maid, to lover, to mother to crone and even Goddess.

Patsy Presley and the Patron Saints of Swing
Cast: 1 W, 3 M, Band
Follow Patsy Presley from angry female Elvis impersonator to a talented singer/songwriter who' feels love. Accompanied by The Patron Saints of Swing, this musical features America's best: Country, Rock-n-Roll, Punk and the Blues.

Short Plays

The Art of Love
Cast: 5 W, 6 M
Three 10-minute scenes that take place in galleries of the San Diego Museum of Art. A great one act or three great 10-minute pieces about losing and finding love.
