REFUGE OF LIES | Acknowledgments

A pending visit today from the person who first commissioned me to develop Refuge Of Lies for production has me thinking of the many people along the way who kept the play growing. From the Acknowledgment page of the script...

Thanks to Stuart Scadron Wattles for his commitment to this play from the start,
and to J.P. Allen (Ventana Press) for publishing the 1994 version script,
and for his advocacy on behalf of this play through the years.

Thanks to Lain Eng, The Creative Gifts Foundation,
Rory Holland, David Jennings, David McFadzean, and Steve and Chris Cragin Day,
for supporting the play's further development and its Off-Broadway premiere.

The playwright would like to acknowledge his appreciation for the dramatugical assistance of Stuart Scadron-Wattles, Wes Wikkerink and John Lazarus, and for the encouragement provided by the New Play Centre in Vancouver whose 24 Hour Playwriting Competition was the occasion of the first draft of this play (under the title "Flesh And Blood"). Gratitude, too, for the indispensible dramaturgy of Kathy Parsons, D.D. Kugler and Steve Day during the play's subsequent development process, 2008 – 2010.
