Kaddish for the Last Survivor Play This Weekend and Next

For those of you who are in the Orlando, Florida area...

As I think I mentioned here before, my friend David Strauss adapted my award-nominated short story "Kaddish for the Last Survivor" into a one-act play. The Playwrights' Round Table is performing the show this weekend and next as part of their Second Annual John Goring Memorial One Act Festival. If you click on the link, it will take you to the website for making reservations to attend.

The Orlando Sentinel ran a nice article about the play. In it, David talks about what drew him to adapt the story for the stage.

In the usual theatrical tradition, I wish "break a leg" to David, director Charles R. Dent, and the cast: Kristen Dewey (Sarah), Byron West (Joshua), Cynthia McLendon (Anna), Brian Groth (Tom), Mira Strauss (Young Sarah), and Candy Heller (Maxine).
