FULL LENGTH PLAYS:
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT speaks directly with a warning for today. Set during and after the Third Reich, a stylistic, surrealistic play inspired by interviews with German Gentile women. The play sweeps from their teen years through adulthood during the Holocaust and beyond. The Nazi Regime impacts the women's lives as they struggle over work, religion, marriage and motherhood. Making overwhelmingly hard choices, they survive or succumb to Hitler's Reign and are changed forever.
A poignant and funny drama of the failure of the American Educational System to serve our youth. The story centers on a disenchanted urban college speech professor and her brilliant but illiterate black student who dreams of a racially equal education to help him to achieve that dream.
