• “This is actually the first one-act play I wrote, back when I had the crazy notion to write them in reverse order. I quickly got over that.—Craig J. Clark’s One-Acts, http://home.earthlink.net/~cjclark/one-acts.htm, accessed June 12, 2003.
• “I have been a practicing playwright since the spring of 1991, when I wrote my first play which was actually worth producing. Since then, I have written a total of 25 one-act plays (including one co-written with Dan West), a large number of one-minute plays, and one revue show (among other things). I am currently at work on a couple full-lengths and always seem to have at least half a dozen other projects kicking around. . . . In addition to writing plays, I also direct, act, stage manage, run lights, do sound designs, and pretty much whatever else people will let me do.”—Craig J.
