As told by the New York News. "… is a tragedy in the classic form and I think it is a modern classic…the central character is a long-shoreman who, though his mind is limited and he cannot find words for his thoughts, is an admirable man…  This is an intensely absorbing drama, sure of itself every step of the way. It makes no false moves, wastes no time and has the beauty that comes from directness and simplicity."

Part of the Hindsight 2021 Short Play Festival (streaming), "An Interview with a George" features two people on opposite sides of a video job interview--who find they have something beyond work to offer the other.

The second annual new short play festival. Over 240 short plays were submitted from 5 continents for this year's festival; nine were selected. ​This years theme is WHAT IS TRUE CONNECTION? After (and frankly, currently) collectively experiencing the reality of the pandemic - often in solitude and distanced from our loved ones - what does it mean for us to be connected now?

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly
funny satire. Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays:
when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty
of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial
expansion. A troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists
scrambles to create a pageant that somehow celebrates both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.
