Singing Down the Drain CoverSinging Down the Drain is a musical with two players, an aging couple who may or may not know who the other is. They have just met or they have known each other for fifty years. The only thing they can remember with any consistency is the lyrics to the music of their lives, and that becomes an effective means of communication between them.

Filed under: Drama — Steve Brooks @ 4:13 pm

Beck and Call CoverBeck & Call: Let’s Spend Some Time Together was first performed at Intersection in San Francisco in 1972, with Gregory Vose playing my antagonist. It was later made into a movie, with Gordon Craig doing the cinematography and myself and Gregory reprising our roles as Beck and Call, although they weren’t called by those names in those earlier productions. They were nameless, intertwined characters. The artwork at left is by Gregory Vose.
