STAGED READING OF NEW PLAY IN ASBURY PARK

Behold…  is about a suburban family which loses a son to a Columbine-type shooting at the local high school and how the family changes while dealing with the tragic loss. While the mother descends into depression, and the daughter into violence, the father rips down a cross representing the shooter from a hillside graveyard memorial. The central, timely question here is, 'Was the shooter a victim of violence, too?'

Behold… was awarded the 2011 Pickering Award for Excellencce in Playwriting and received a workshop production at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. His play Adam & Yoshi will receive a full workshop production this summer at Utah Shakespeare Festival.
