“One of the responses I received to the show was that, as one person said, 'The problem with this show is that everybody's right. It's easier if everybody's wrong...the play is really about loving someone who's hard to love.”
A soft copy of Falling is available upon request.

“There is a certain immortality involved in theater, not created by monuments and books, but through the knowledge the actor keeps to his dying day that on a certain afternoon, in an empty and dusty theater, he cast a shadow of a being that was not himself but the distillation of all he had ever observed; all the un-singable heart-song the ordinary man may feel but never utter, he gave voice to. And by that he somehow joins the ages.”
