WORLD PREMIERE

"I have always loved myths. They are filled with symbolism. That’s probably why I tell stories. Some, like Pandoras Box, try to explain how and why things are the way they are. Others, like Adam and Eve in the Garden, are a sort of road map with metaphoric sign post to guide us to right action. There were two trees in the Garden, the Tree of Life ( the Family Tree ) and The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. You could eat from one, but not the other. And what’s up with that Original Sin?

In BETWEEN TWO RIVERS I tried to strip away the metaphors, use modern language, reference recognizable places and insert some recent history ( Sandusky scandal ) to tell a story."
