Inspired by the love story of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, Plane Love is a contemporary fictional play about two love struck icons engaged in a spiraling series of emails which become increasingly more personal and sensual. We are offered a revealing glimpse into the lives of two stars and the jeopardy caused by their deadly attraction to each other. Written to be read, the play is uplifting, funny and sad in a time where tragedy and comedy hold hands and make love, go through divorces and marriages, then part forever. Much of it is beguiling and steamy love talk which she includes in the play to her credit because it IS funny!The inspiration for Plane Love is based on the sizzling yet sweet relationship and eventual marriage of Clark Gable and Carol Lombard from the Hollywood Studio legends days. Don't know who they are? You haven't seen Gable in the iconic civil war epic Gone With the Wind? Plane Love gambits the turning points of Gable's and Lombard's lives: the click-snap falling in love when they meet, their gradual recognition of what has happened, despite being involved with others, and the tug and pull throughout, until they symbolically close what is beyond their power to resist.
Plane Love received an invitation to the New York City International Fringe Festival in 2016 and to the Hammer Theatre in Virginia (Virginia Playwrights and Screenwriters Initiative). The work was workshopped/staged at the Actors Studio, NY.
