Future Projects

Sight Unseen
by Donald Margulies

Highly successful painter Jonathan Waxman, on a trip to London for his first gallery opening abroad, visits his old love. Patricia, now an archeologist, lives in the English countryside with her husband Nick. 
Underneath the surface of an awkward reunion simmer long festering resentments, regrets, and anger. Then there is the art. How much does Jonathan owe his success to Patricia, who he rejected while her being instrumental in his finding his voice as an artist? What does “success” for an artist truly mean and look like?

“You mean there are people on Park Avenue or in Tokyo who have walls in their living rooms especially reserved for the latest Waxman, Number 238?. . .these poor, unsuspecting — rather, rich unsuspecting–patrons of the arts have bought, sight unseen, a painting you have not yet painted?” 

Reading series of the NY Society for Ethical Culture, NYC, followed by a moderated discussion of the pertinent themes raised in the play.

The Clowns
a new play in development by Gino Dilorio

Adeline and Phinny have been clowns together for many years, a couple on and off the circus stage. But time waits for no man, and a new clown joining their circus shakes up their old ways. Gino’s play is funny, sweet, wistful, with strong, proud characters. I am very much looking forward to this first reading, an expansion of the short Clowns Alley  I directed in 2018.

“Bunch of crazy people running this thing. The riggers, the wires, even the front yard people, that’s the real freak show.   All that stuff about people running away with the circus, it’s all true.  Everybody running away from something.  Or somebody.” (Phinny)

Reading series of the Playwright Directors Unit of the Actors Studio, NYC.
