MORE ABOUT ME
In 1999, I wrote a play called “CandleDancing, The Voice of Julian of Norwich”. The two main characters in the play were a soon to be defrocked priest, Fr. Peter, a a young orphan, Will. They were each devised from real people that I knew but they did not know each other. Opening night, at intermission, the two real people approached each other. I was amazed, asking how they knew each other… The boy, David / Will, the character was now in college studying Myth and Religion with Fr. Athanasious/ Fr. Peter.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
A new play called “ Beyond Carbon “ that will attempt to understand the creative evolution of humanity.
