Personal Quote:

(On his play After the Fall) The best of our theater is standing on tiptoe, striving to see over the shoulders of father and mother. The worst is exploiting and wallowing in the self-pity of adolescence and obsessive keyhole sexuality. The way out, as the poet says, is always through. See more »

Trivia:

First wife Mary Slattery was his college sweetheart. See more »
