GENESIS OF A PLAY

Rachel and Julio ( One Summer in Brooklyn ) has had a long gestation period over many years. While retaining its original integrity - the body and shape of the play has grown and changed shape due to the help of many wonderful people who have taken an interest and given us the benefit of their observations. Our thanks go out to those individuals as we recount the many places we have been leading up to now.
