Dramatic Works

  • Hillary's Tea.
    A pleasant afternoon at the White House, during which a famous First Lady invites a rather infamous woman to tea. Tempers are white hot as they are forged on the anvil of experience. The media have caught wind that something might be going on. Strange to think what might be going on behind closed doors (but open windows) in our Nation's Capital.

  • Dracula (Undressed).
    The famous play by Balderston and Dean is adapted— modified, rather, during which the audience has the oddest feeling that something is wrong. Modified? No: more like resubstantiated. Reconstituted? In any case, the renowned Vampire is the most powerful he's ever been, because he has attacked more viciously than ever before, in his 600 year career.

  • Henry VIII, This is Thy Life!
    An Elizabethan Feaste, written to celebrate the 500th natal day of Henry Tudor, father of little Eliza. Featuring guest appearances by Hans Holbein, Ann Boleyn, and a wild boar. As performed by the Wilton Singers, May, 1992.
  • Russel's Back Yard.
    Cycle of musical plays for children, in which an 12-year old protagonist discovers solutions to life's problems thanks to an incredibly active imagination.

  • Cataracts
    A radio play in which a couple meets in a restaurant, several years after parting, and find that they become quickly sucked back into the behavior that caused them to be separated.

  • Another Tortoise, Another Hare
    Published by Samuel French, a musical play with timely dialogue; true community theater in which the whole town can participate.

TV and Video

Uncovering Shakespeare: An Update.
Three-hour debate, moderated by the late William F. Buckley, Jr. which was a first of its kind, discussing the authorship of Shakespeare's plays. Once thought to be the domain of cranks and amateur literary sleuths, the Authorship Question is a serious inquiry into the historical aspects of the Elizabethan Era, and it never fails to engender controversy.

Shakespeare in Sable.
A lecture and performance of Black Shakespearean Actors, from the book of the same title by the late Dr. Errol Hill, Professor of Drama & Oratory at Dartmouth University. The actors include Charles Dutton, Elaine Toussaint, Hal Scott, and Earle Hyman, and are among some of the most moving scenes recorded.
