"Shakespeare and the Heart's Desire" will be coming up soon, in a February 27 presentation at the Darien Arts Center, featuring the great actors of the Theatre Artists Workshop, directed by my mentor and artistic partner, Mark Graham. This is the third play of the Shakespeare trilogy we've been working on for several years now. The first one was featured at the Utah Shakespeare Festival in 2014. Both the first and second ones were also done at The National Arts Club in NYC, 2013 and 2014. The three plays bring to life Shakespeare the man, the creative artist, the flawed father (through the eyes of the daughter he disinherited), and the writer caught in a political web he dreaded but barely believed possible, as well as a lover in thrall to an emotion he could not have anticipated. The plays have been called "magic" and "nothing like what anyone else has been doing."
