TOM DUDZICK (Playwright) is one of the few playwrights who makes a living at it. His first play, a Christmas tale called Greetings!, opened at New York’s John Houseman Theatre and starred Darren McGavin and Greg Edelman. It is now a holiday favorite across the country and has had well over one hundred productions. His next play, Over the Tavern, the first in a semi-autobiographical trilogy, has over two hundred productions under its belt, with many box office records broken throughout the U.S. The Irish adaptation, Over the Pub, also broke the box office record at Cork Arts Theatre in Ireland. Tom has had eight plays to date, most published by Playscripts, Inc. He was recently honored with a memorial plaque embedded in front of his boyhood home in Buffalo. And an even greater honor – he was once a question on Jeopardy!

A LETTER FROM THE AUTHOR
couldn’t be more proud and delighted that Circle Theatre has made this play its sixth – are you listening? – its SIXTH Tom Dudzick play! Who knew that a Buffalo boy could relate so well to Texans?
I’ve made it no secret that Over the Tavern’s 1959 Pazinski family was more than loosely based on the Dudzicks. What you saw on stage was who we were. But in King o’ the Moon, which takes place ten years later, the Pazinskis are given their freedom – to be themselves. No longer resembling the Dudzicks, the Pazinkis now have a story to tell that is uniquely their own. And it’s just as well. For after leaving Sister Clarissa’s watchful eye, we Dudzicks settled into a very undramatic normalcy – normal marriages, normal jobs – enough to write home about but, frankly, nothing to write a play about. A play needs conflict. And people in real life go out of their way to avoid it. So, giving the Pazinskis free reign, I imagined where the turbulent 60s might have taken them. Did Rudy’s burning curiosity about the mind of God take him in an interesting direction? Did he still do Ed Sullivan impressions? Did Annie ever meet Mr. Right? Is she still addicted to Twinkies? Speaking of addictions, did mentally challenged Georgie ever lose his proclivity for 4-letter words? And what happens to a play’s colorful but unseen characters? Such as OTT’s “bad girl” of the neighborhood, Maureen Blake? If you recall, she used to meet boys under the train trestle on Swan Street. Did she ever clean up her act or is she in a women’s detention home? How about Mom and Dad – where did ten years take them? Is their tavern still open for business? Did they ever hire a part-time bartender? Anyone interesting? Sit back. Relax. Tonight all will be revealed! And thanks for having me back! TD “No matter how many communes anybody invents, the family always creeps back.” – Margaret Mead

Let it be war. David Lindsay-Abaireâ€™s new high-stakes comedy, Ripcord, follows a seemingly harmless bet made between two residents of the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility. Cheerful Marilyn wants the bed next to the window, but crabby Abby wants her to move out. In a risky game of one-upmanship, this hilarious new play will have you laughing, crying, and scared for everyone involved. Who will pull the cord first? * Actorsâ€™ Equity Association
