Three of my plays dealing with international issues of human rights received staged readings at the Snowlion Rep Co on September 10, 2015. I called the program “A Night of Fashion: Three Plays About Clothes, Hair, Shoes, and Makeup.” The title was designed to be ironic. In each play the characters wish to live their own lives dealing with simple things, but are unable because of external forces and people. These plays were DRESS FOR SUCCESS, DRESSED TO KILL, and MAKEUP. The plays take place in Egypt, Nigeria, and Afghanistan. Photos of the actors in the plays are on my Facebook page. The plays were well received by other plawrights and directors. I was stimulated by the comments to develop the characters in the plays more fully and consider their total humanity. In this way characters both protagonists and agonists will be more real for the audience to see and the actors to portray. It was back to the keyboard the following day to make revisions! All for the better. All for better writing.
