I came to Portland in the late 1970s after the breakup of my marriage. This is the first of my plays to be done here, starting a decade plus love affair with Portland theater, during which I was the resident playwright at two companies. In 1988 a retrospective was done of my work, a theater dedicating its season to my plays, ending with a new one commissioned by the Oregon Arts Commission -- and this amounted to a wake. I was dead in Portland thereafter. But no matter, by then I was obsessed with hyperdrama and writing for a European market.
