Video of The Draft available soon!

December 29, 2016

A video of my play, The Draft, should be available in January for purchase from the Media Education Foundation. MEF specializes in distributing educational documentary films to colleges and high schoolsI've also set up a website to boost promotion of the video: www.vietnamdraftplay.com My fellow collaborators and I have always had the ambition that The Draft -- based on Tom Weiner's book, "Called To Serve: Stories of Men and Women Confronting the Vietnam War Draft" -- could be an effective educational tool on issues on war and militarism. And MEF clearly shares our faith in its potential by including the video in its 2017 catalog.

Of course, we'd never have gotten this far without the incredible generosity of so many friends and family members. Thanks to your contributions to our Indiegogo campaign, we were able to hire a terrific filmmaker, Bruce Petschek, to film a performance of the play during its premiere run at Hibernian Hall in Boston, and then tour the show for three performances -- two at colleges -- in western Massachusetts and Connecticut.
