Dead Man’s Wake, a new play for 4M 3F by Larry Klein, will soon be available for preview and production! We did a very successful staged reading of the play in April 2015, for which I served as dramaturg and director. With hints of American stage classics by Arthur Miller, Eugene O’Neill and Tennessee Williams, Dead Man’s Wake is set in Marin County, CA, in 1969.
One of the primary themes and messages of the play is accepting oneself and others for who they are, rather than trying to live up to others’ expectations or expecting others to live up to who we think they should be. The characters are complex and the issues timeless and compelling.
