Recent showcases that played to capacity audiences and 5 star reviews include "You Bring Me Joy" a reworking of Classical Greek tragedy on a modern setting, "The Blaze of Noon" about Dante & Milton", "Supper on Li Galli"about Nureyev & Fonteyne, "Time Out of Mind" a about Marlowe and Shakespeare, and "Edith & Jessie" a "high comedy of low intent".

I run a small community theater in an expat community in Panama.  I ahve seen reviews of your play, "Edith and Jessie" and believe ti would be an ideal fit for our actors as well as our audience.  How can I obtain a copy of the script and learn about performance fees?

Thank you!
