ANNOUNCEMENT: Having been selected a 2nd Street Theater Playwrights' Platform festival favorite, The Mark of Cain, Gary's next courtroom drama, will have a full production at Subversive Theatre's Manny Fried Playhouse in 2016. Inspired by the landmark Ossian Sweet murder case, during which Clarence Darrow defended a black Detroit doctor and his family on murder charges after they defended their home against a white mob, The Mark of Cain, like Inherit the Wind, is historical but not history. In defending Dr. Ossian Cain, attorney Charles Durham raises a question fundamental in our divisive political atmosphere: What does one have to do to be accepted as American? Interested theater companies should contact the playwright at
