Here are some samples of my theater work.
The long repressed issues between three generations of a middle class WASP family explode on a Saturday in 1976. A dark comedy about racism, alcoholism, and mothers. First produced at the Ensemble Studio Theater in New York (William Carden, artistic director) and directed by Michael Barakiva.
New York Magazine named it Pick of the Week. “Cuthbert’s written a funny, fond, but not entirely forgiving family portrait, full of wist and rue.“
The great Hollywood director Preston Sturges dies penniless at the Algonquin Hotel and becomes a ghost who must relive his past and make peace with its major players, including Howard Hughes, Isadora Duncan, his ex-wives and lovers, and his mother. A comedy about genius, failure, love, and death. (read me)
The Fireman's Carry
Laying Down the Law
First produced at HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, this is a sketch from Bar Play Night, a collection of short alcohol-related pieces. (read me)
