My dad, John N. Frank, has always been a writer, and last year he ventured into play writing for the first time.
He put on his play, New Years Eve at Grandma's House, last April at Piven Theater with members of a theater troupe he formed. It was the story of his childhood, growing up in an Italian-American family in New York City. You can read more about that performance here.
I also did all the designs for it, which can be seen here.
Now, this year, he is on to his second play, Talking with My Dad. Also a personal subject, it explores the continued relationship between parent and child, even after the parent is deceased.
My dad has started a fund-raising campaign in order to bring this next play to the stage. Perks include tickets to see the show and meeting the cast. Please consider donating - here.
Or, go see the show later this year if you are in or around Chicago!
