His newest play The Silencer will be staged in late February at the NY Winterfest while Political Animal will be featured in June at the NY Summerfest 2019.
The Silencer follows a man after his wife’s death at the hands of a negligent cell-phone-speaking driver. As he takes the law into his own hands by killing rude phone users, we see the a satirical look at how our obsession with cell phones drives men to madness.
