RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway,

In a small town dime store in West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Gianttwo decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flash backs to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning but familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.

"Captures convincingly the atmosphere of the 1950s." - W.W.D

"A work of amazing dramatic power... ingenious, shocking... funny, brimming with pathos, wise and full of wonder at the sometimes sinister tricks of life. The best play I have seen in years." - Gannet Newspapers

"A challenging piece of theatre" - The London Standard

The play was first produced by Players Theatre in Columbus, Ohio opening September 30, 1975. It was directed by the author.
