“A young man develops an infatuation with a male dancer who goes past his house every afternoon. He discusses it with his lady friend who encourages him to do something about it. Something is done, but nothing is resolved.
“One set. Eleven scenes, from very brief to fairly long. Very simple technical requirements.” • Unproduced. • “I've directed over 90 fully-produced events (and dozens of other projects). I have great respect for actors, technicians, designers, producers and playwrights, and have been in all those positions at various times myself. I especially enjoy working with students and new actors. My scripts have been produced by theaters around the country -- most recently my translation/adaptation of Goldoni's A Servant of Two Masters in California, and in New York City, my adaptation of The Woman, originally written by William C. DeMille”—David Zarko, theater director and playwright: resume and writing samples, http://mypeoplepc.com/members/davidzarko/, accessed August 14, 2003.
