The Director is God. But the actors are atheists.

Playwright

    Plays: I wrote a few plays at New Haven State Teachers College in 1959, one of which (Home Is Never Far Away) won their playwrighting contest in 1960 and got a reading. I didn't write any more plays until the early 1970s, when I wrote Sunday at the Zoo, which has received 4 readings but no productions. In the 1980s, I wrote a number of plays, 5 of which were produced in Baltimore, and others given readings. U.F.O.! (written with Tom Monteleone) was the 1st production of the 1st Baltimore Playwrights Festival in 1982

    Acting: I began acting in high school in 1952, majored briefly in drama at NYU, then switched to math after one season of summer stock at the Champlain Shakespeare Festival in 1960, although I continued acting for many companies, including Washington D.C.'s American Light Opera Company (ALOC) in 1963.

    Tech: In 1964, I began running lights for ALOC. I enjoyed it so much, I never went back on stage for ALOC and have continued running lights whenever possibly, notably with the Hippodrome in Gainesville Fla., the Fells Point and the Vagabond Theatres in Baltimore, and the Trinity Theatre in Georgetown, Washington, DC. I have also done most other theatre tech jobs except stage manager.
