In September, during the break between Summer and Fall quarters, My mother reminded me of the script she had shown me once several years ago, entitled Turbulent Times: The Trial of Francis Dick. She had been presenting the play as an afternoon workshop with elementary level history students on and off for several years. An Historical Society volunteer wrote the script, an historically accurate courtroom drama about a local murder trial which had taken place in the Eighteen-fifties. It was theatrical, historical and ripe for the picking. I expressed interest in my mother's suggestion, and asked the Historical Society for more information. They offered me the opportunity to mount my own production of Turbulent Times: The Trial of Francis Dick. I could stage the play in the Old Court House Museum, the site of the original trial. The Historical Society volunteered their research facilities, connections, and limited financial support. More importantly, though, as the sole coordinator of all aspects of the production, I would have the opportunity to exercise all my talents, creating an artistic endeavor that was wholly my own. It didn't take much reflection when the Brian Hackett, the Executive Director of the Historical Society approached me with the official proposal. Would I like to put on a Society sponsored yet independent production of Turbulent Times? My answer was an emphatic "yes!" The rest, as they say, is history.
