“It's a one-sided conversation with a buddy who never made it back, twenty years after the fact.
“Born and raised in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois, Edward Clinton began his career as an actor, making his professional debut in Chicago with Alvina Krause's Eagle's Mere Repertory Company followed by his New York debut at Wyn Handman's American Place Theatre, where he appeared in Ed Bullins' play The Pig Pen. Mr. Clinton received a full scholarship to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he studied acting with Lloyd Richards, Olympia Dukakis, Peter Kass and Jerzy Grotowski. After ten years of performing roles in New York and regional theatre, Mr. Clinton left acting to pursue writing full time. He is a playwrighting fellow of the Eugene O'Neill Playwrights' Center. His play Benefit of Doubt was first done at the world renowned Playwrights' Center where it was directed by Lynne Meadow, founder and Artistic Director of the Manhattan Theatre Club. Mr. Clinton's play Benefit of a Doubt went on to have its world premiere production at the Folger Theatre in Washington D.C., directed by Emmy Award winning director Barnet Kellman and starring Academy Award nominee Carol Kane. This initial production was followed by subsequent productions of the play around the country, including a New York presentation featuring Academy Award winner Chris Cooper (SEABISCUIT).”—Edward Clinton playwright - plays biography information, http://www.doollee.com, accessed February 4, 2006.
• Remember Me, dedicated “to all who went and came back not quite whole for the benefit of the rest of us” is three related one act plays concerning the lives and the events associated with Vietnam Veterans. Their recollection of personal experiences from the war, as well as the effect it had on their lives after returning from the war and faced an attitude that was less than receptive. It is a moving tribute to the many people who served in a war that was unpopular and in the end for naught. These plays can be performed collectively as an evening of theatre, or separately as one act plays.”—Edward Clinton, http://www.edwardclintonplaywright.com/plays8.htm, accessed February 4, 2006.
