About this project

Have you ever been told that you couldn't do something, but you tried anyway? In the 1980s, I was told that my stage plays would NEVAH appear in a certain theatre. I continued writing, saw my plays on other stages- more than 40 of them, but never in THAT theatre. Hurt & feeling rejected, I finally understood that they only produced imports & noted works, not original plays.

This year, I submitted my play, "Sisters of the Cloth," to the inaugural Women's Theatre Festival of Memphis (Aug. 2 - 4, 2012), and it was accepted as the mainstage production!  The irony is that it will be presented at The Circuit Playhouse-the VERY THEATRE THAT HAD REJECTED MY WORK IN THE 80's!   I retired in 2010 due to congestive heart failure but despite my illnesses and challenges, I am determined that this story is presented with the highest standards of theatrical production. 

Set in 1945, a beautiful young Leora Mosby returns home to her family after discovering bad news about her NEW husband. Jealous neighbors hatch a dastardly plot to rid the neighborhood of Leora's presence. Her cloth/scarf wearing female family members figure heavily into ending the plot, as it seems men fall into the spell of those who wear these cloths. I am soliciting your pledges in hopes to cover production costs on this large stage. Presentation is 50% of anything; you don't serve steak on a garbage can!  Won't you please help make this happen? (Cast of 11 not counting extras)
