David Schweizer ("And God Created Whales") is set to direct. The play was first work-shopped under Mr. Schweizer's direction at the Public Theatre in NYC.

Camilla's critically acclaimed first novel, "Topsy Dingo Wild Dog", was published internationally, and her screen adaptation of it, "Ms. Canine Divne", although too provocative even for the indie world, has never failed to get her a meeting. She has written many motion pictures for television, including a musical for Dolly Parton, "High and Mighty", the adaptation of Pulitzer-Prize crime journalist Edna Buchanan's novel, "Nobody Lives Forever", and the endlessly aired "Escape from Terror".

Camilla's newest novel is "Packard Jordan's Final Appeal to the Texas State Parole Board". She is also writing a screenplay about Bette Davis.

For this production, Camilla also received the AGLA Media, Oscar Wilde and Robby Awards, as well as a Proclamation from the City of Los Angeles for Producing Outstanding Theatre.

Camilla created the role of Rita Connally on the daytime soap "Another World", played Jane Wyman's detective, Nellie, on "Falcon Crest" and is still hissed and booed for her portrayal of Imogene in the most awarded and viewed segment of "Designing Women": "They're Killing All the Right People".
