BIOGRAPHY

Most of my writing has been in theater, with some film and non-fiction. My plays have been performed at Manhattan Theatre Club, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Actors Theater of Louisville, South Coast Repertory, Manitoba Theatre Centre, LA's Fountain Theater, and, most recently, an award-winning production at Chicago's Raven Theater of my play, DIRECT FROM DEATH ROW THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS.

In film, I wrote the screenplay for Housesitter, which featured Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn, and other films and TV productions. My non-fiction books include How the States Got Their Shapes, which became the basis for a History Channel series by the same name, followed by American Panic: A History of Who Scares Us and Why, and most recently, Vice Capades: Sex, Drugs, and Bowling from the Pilgrims to the Present.

 

NOTE FROM PLAYWRIGHT

My work is about understanding each other.
