postcard, St. Petersburg (Fla.), play


by Richard Manley Featuring an all star cast: Kylin Brady, Georgia Mallory Guy*, Chris Jackson, and Christopher Rutherford Directed by Bob Devin Jones Synopsis: "Life is Mostly Straws" centers around David and Noah, two brothers who shared a troubled childhood, during which they relied upon each other for survival. Although successful by all outward signs and still very close, the fear and self-doubt of their early days lie just beneath the surface of their apparent confidence. As well, they have made words their weapon of choice. "Life is Mostly Straws" is a literate play, where one character uses language like a scalpel while the other wields it like a bludgeon, but each understands its power. About Richard Manley: After two decades of success as a copywriter and advertising executive, Richard Manley started a second career writing stage plays. He rediscovered his passion for the sound of the language and its potential to entertain and provoke and inspire.
