What's Up?

I recently wrote a new play called High Time, about the battle to legalize medical marijuana.  This is the second play I have co-written with William Dolphin.  The play is based on the true story of an activist who was growing medical marijuana under California law when the federal government busted him and made a show trial of his efforts to help the sick and dying.  

We have also adapted High Time into a screenplay.

I recently adapted Out Late into a screenplay.  

I've become literate in Russian and am working on several projects related to this endeavor.  Stay tuned. 

Neela Vaswani, Ph.D. used Out Late as a text to spur discussion during the sexuality segment of his "American Literature as Cultural Studies" course at Knox College in Indiana (spring term 2009) .
