Undaunted by these seemingly monumental barriers, Grace proceeds through a rollercoaster of pain, humor and heated arguments in her search for family harmony.
About this Playwright
Dick Meredith began playwriting upon a dare after seeing his wife in a show. He left saying, "I could write better than that." His wife challenged him to prove it. Upon request, he wrote four popular educational plays that toured in Florida, two positively reviewed Florida dinner theatre murder mysteries, and three comedies for seniors performed by Atlanta Theatre to Go, the Mohler actresses in Hershey, PA, and the Winding Rivers Players in Towanda, PA. Dick's background as a patrol officer, detective, fraud investigator, teacher, Vietnam veteran, grandfather and husband brings authenticity and humor to his work. A University of South Florida graduate, Dick currently lives with his wife Patti in her hometown of Towanda, PA.
DEATH DEFYING COMEDY by Mike Fuller
"We had not been to a live stage performance for a few years when the opportunity came to us to see Dick's play. We were swept up into the emotional relationships with which the actress was setting her kitchen table and then the turn to laughter that rolled over the audience as the twist on stage unfolded. Though only one character is visible, the stage is filled with the life and love and sorrow of a cast spun to life, and death, by a script that is superbly crafted and just plain fun! A challenge for any actress to master but a real treat for the audience to enjoy. Dick has a clever mind and a warm heart and it is evidenced by this truly marvelous work."
