Screenplays and Stage Plays
Braggarts irritate me, but if I don't toot my own trumpet (just as a tin thing) I won't get the interest in my work that it may deserve. I start my 'music' with a true tale. A retired MGM producer once read a screenplay of mine. We met here in London and he said to me, "You write better than most of them."
My next seeming achievement was to get the interest of Gregory Peck and Richard Farnsworth for the lead part in A REGULAR JOE, another screenplay, but my ad hoc producers who had connected me with those famous actors, and others, were unable to come up with the money for the project.
Going back further, I've had three stage plays produced in London theatres. The last play was translated into Russian and German. It was nearly produced in Moscow at a marvellous arts theatre near Red Square. Lack of financial backing was again the problem. Too bad, as the Russians loved my satire, SMALL TALK. (Russia had just become Russia again.)
(A German theatre producer owns the production rights to the German translation of Small Talk.)
Since those times, I've completed several other scripts. I have a full length drama for the stage and a short religious comedy, THE TRIAL OF GOD, which one actor has called "a beautiful comedy". Both plays should be performed in the UK first. The "God play" could also be a film. It needs one set and five players.
Two newer and other screenplays would most suitably be shot in the USA and Canada, both comedies and dramas. STAYING WITH FRIENDS is a comedy that explores the question whether neighbours can truly be friends.
Now that I have dropped some of my names as well as some of my projects, I'd love for some of you to drop your names to me, and your own interests.
I'd appreciate it if some of you who are looking for a new movie or play to look at some of my work. I didn't just do it for myself. Thank you,
