Attention men who are living apart from their wives in the midst of some ridiculous pseudo marriage: if a strange woman answers your phone when your wife calls, do NOT hop on a plane and fly cross country to see your Mrs. It makes you look suspicious, becomes fuel for gossip, and if your wife is Meredith Grey, it'll lead to her killing a patient (bye bye, Streak).

by BWW News Desk - Apr 1, 2015

'The Vanishing Wife' by Barry Finlay receives Medalist Honors in the Mystery-Thriller e-book category of the 2014 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis Mild-mannered accountant Mason Seaforth is living a quiet, perfect life with his wife Sami in the sleepy community of Gulfport, Florida. At least it's quiet and perfect until Sami vanishes during the night of their twentieth wedding anniversary, plunging Mason into a new life that he could not possibly have imagined. Mason finds himself in a dark world of deception and murder and his heart-stopping race to find out what happened to his wife forces him to exchange his spreadsheets for a Glock 17. And just when he thinks his situation can't get any worse, he finds out his daughter's life is also in danger. With the help of Sami's irrepressible close friend Marcie Kane, he follows a trail that leads them from Florida to Canada's capital of Ottawa where he is required to make choices. Each choice is more dangerous to him and his family than the last - the wrong one will be disastrous. The only thing that will awaken Mason from this nightmare is to determine what has happened to his beloved Sami, and uncover the secret that she has been hiding throughout their marriage. About the Author Barry Finlay is a multiple award-winning author of the mystery/thriller The Vanishing Wife, the inspirational Kilimanjaro and Beyond - A Life-Changing Journey (with his son Chris) and the hilarious travel memoir, I Guess We Missed The Boat.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 1, 2015

The Human Race continues its 28th season as Dayton's leading professional theatre with the Midwest premiere of Canadian playwright John Murrell's lesson in self-discovery, Taking Shakespeare. When a longtime, disillusioned college professor is asked to tutor her dean's son through his freshman Shakespeare class, she finds it to be as much a test for her as it is for him. Although they seem to have nothing in common, as they explore the Bard's Othello together, they learn more about each other-and themselves-than either is ready to admit. While they draw strength from the play, they come to understand what it means to live up to expectations. The production runs April 16 - May 3, 2015 at The Loft Theatre. It is directed by frequent Human Race actor/director Aaron Vega, who helmed The Race's Twelfth Night in 2011. (more...)
