The Drama Workshop’s Home View Theatre series continues with the release of INDIAN SIGN,
written by Clint Bramkamp, and directed by Richard Zenk
INDIAN SIGN is a clever piece about a campaign to save a classic yet controversial piece of roadside Americana, and the objections raised by someone who takes the sign personally. The video version of the play written by Clint Bramkamp is directed by Richard Zenk. The stage version of INDIAN SIGN made its debut on our stage during Home Brew in 2019. The video features John McInerney and Jessie Faye. Ms Faye was also the author of the first video in Home View Series II: The Rules. Technical support was given by Director of Photography Lon Nease and Sound Engineer Shannon Nease, who both teamed up to edit the video as well. Mr. Nease has also appeared on the Glenmore Playhouse stage in The Philadelphia Story. Director Richard Zenk also directed the prize winning “Brave” on stage as part of Home Brew Theatre in 2019.
