Overview

TIM KELLY (1931-1998) was a proli?c and successful American writer, with more than three hundred plays to his credit. His works (which include comedies, dramas, one-acts, mysteries, melodramas, children's shows and musicals) have been produced by New York's Studio Ensemble Theatre, Royal Court Rep, Apple Corps, Manhattan Theatre Club, Los Angeles Actor's Theatre, Aspen Playwright's Festival, the Seattle Repertory Company, and countless other theatres around the world. A television and screenwriter as well, Kelly penned such cult ?lms as Cry of the Banshee (1970) and Sugar Hill (1974). Critics may ignore or loathe him, but his in?uence over amateur theatre is still felt today. His work continues to be performed everywhere. Constantly.

Ben Ohmart is the author of biographies on Paul Frees, Daws Butler, Judy Canova, Mel Blanc, Walter Tetley, Joan Davis, Don Ameche, The Bickersons, and editor of several books of Bickersons and Baby Snooks radio scripts.

    The Highschool Drama Teacher's Hero

    There's so much I like about this book. I'm so glad this very prolific, but underappreciated (at least, by the theatre critics) author is getting his due respect. And what an interesting life he had! He traveled the world, but still had time to write over 300 plays - on his typewriter, no less. He was no fan of computers, thank you very much. We readers learn what he was like, what his work routine was, who the important people in his life were, and where he achieved his greatest successes. It's a practical book, too. For people who love to read but have so little time to spare, the short chapters are a real bonus. I'm going to give a copy of this book to my highschool-drama-treacher cousin. She'll love it.
