I've written a play entitled “Words that Must be Said' about my growing up as a baby boomer in middle class Long Island.
The play is semi-autobiographical and tells of the impact of social and historical events upon me and my closest friends, who were raised in a conventional religion. Influenced by the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement, the conventional church lost its relevance and devolved into a cult. The play warns of the seductive danger of suspending one's conscience for a perceived “greater good.”
I believe America, especially the religious Right, is in such danger during the age of Trump.
And I believe my play could serve as a script of a television miniseries
