He directed the original play, The Problem With English, a modern New York play in the true tradition of farce; he both created and directed The Way, an original play based on verses of the Tao Te Ching; and he wrote the book for an original musical, Away We Go! In 2005, Mr. Montgomery took a group of high school students with whom he co-created the original satire ADHDU - Ed on Meds, and won an honorable mention from Amnesty International at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Mr. Montgomery’s work with students emphasizes original work and the importance of the creative freedom and contribution of young artists.
