I hope you're all keeping well in this difficult time.  As you know, it's a particularly challenging time for the theatre, as we all adapt to a new, but hopefully temporary, "normal".  I hope you can find a way to support your local artists--not just to help them stay active and creative now, but so they'll be ready to welcome you back with the exciting and vital work we'll all need when theatre goes live again...

In the meantime--and maybe at the right time--Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass are having it out in "Necessary Sacrifices" in a couple of online venues.  First, Ford's Theatre, who originally commissioned the play, will be doing a live Zoom reading on August 20; click here for details.  Following that, in September, North Coast Repertory in California will be presenting a limited run production, also online.  Details will follow, but you can check here in the meantime.  And thanks for your support!

P.S.: many thanks to Taproot Theatre in Seattle for a great production of "Necessary Sacrifices" last fall.  If you missed it, some nice words from:

          Seattle Magazine

          Broadway World



...to my website.  Which, as you'll see, is still under construction, but as someone also said about plays, "they're not finished, they're abandoned..."


But you're welcome to have a look around--lots of plays waiting to be done, and a few other things.  If you find something you're interested in, contact me!
