After idly writing songs, poems, monologues and short plays for 30 years, Rick finally decided to mount the better of the bunch at Burlington’s Off Center for the Dramatic Arts in the late winter of 2016. He called his show “Out of My Head: An Eclectic Collection Mined from the Mind of G. Richard Ames.” He reprised the collection at QuarryWorks in August 2017, and in 2018 presented there his sequel, “Into My Head: A Unique Excavation of the Freak Imagination of G. Richard Ames.”
In February 2019, he performed a “greatest hits” compilation in the “One and Only” festival at Grange Hall Cultural Center in Waterbury, entitled, “Word G.Ames: The Tenacity, Veracity, Ferocity, Luminosity, Verbosity and Virtuosity (with a paucity of atrocity, morosity, monstrosity and viscosity) of G. Richard Ames.” Most recently, he co-starred with Erin McIntyre in two one-act plays based on his experiences, The Remaining Hostage and Take Your Hate Out of Our State!, in the presentation, “Sent Him Mental: The Humanity and Insanity of G. Richard Ames.”
Amid all this creating and displaying of his own material, he has found the time to appear in other folks’ stunning works at Lost Nation Theater, QuarryWorks and Lyric Theatre.
