UNO Film and Theatre Professor, David Hoover, directs a staged reading of this year’s One-Act Play contest winning entry, By the Book by James Wade. Festival Judge, Peter Hagan (former President of the Dramatist Play Service) had this to say about By the Book: “Six (well, five) characters in search of a writer’s room. This send-up of television police procedurals is very funny, very smart and—at an important moment in the play—surprisingly moving. The playwright has a sharp eye for the absurdities (and also delights) of the genre, and also has some very keenly-observed things to say about how sticking slavishly to a formula, and relegating minority characters and stories to the sidelines, can keep us from seeing the Big Picture. A well-crafted and thoroughly original play. With thanks to Pirandello.”
