Meet the Author

Robert Cornthwaite has worked for many years as an actor in radio, theater, films, and television. Occasionally he directs a play, or writes one, or translates one from languages he learned in school or from travel - French, German, and Italian. These are always plays he likes for their liveliness, their humor, their ideas, and-yes-their sheer theatricality.
