- Two-Act Play Nobody goes to Gary is a Swiftian satire. Gil Tolliver, an investigative reporter I New York City, makes a fateful journey into the real heart of Gary, Indiana, after hearing the musical tune "Gary, Indiana, Gary, Indiana" during _The Music Man_. Don't measure the distance of Gary from New York in miles, but in emotional light years. This absurd, single song defines all anybody knows or wishes to know. This is a problem not only for Gary, but for other under-represented and misunderstood locations. Comments are welcome from anyone, no need to be "an expert" on theatre.
- The disjuncture between the song "Gary, Indiana, Gary, Indiana" in The Music Man inspired this satire. Like a pebble in an oyster and like being unheard in a deep ocean (who listens to oysters. anyway?) over many, many years, this play grew. Please respect copyright of playwright, but i will take offers to produce this play and may waive fee for so doing.
