BWW Interview: DANIEL MARTIN Gets Fancy
by Marietta Lunceford - Sep 9, 2016

Daniel Martin has written several plays, but I have been most intrigued by Theatre Downtown's upcoming production MISS FANCY, which Daniel has written and directed.

The conversation that begins in the rehearsal room of a devised theater piece is only the first of an ongoing dialogue that continues as the audience leaves the theater. (more...)

Thom Schmenk Pens LIVING LIFE 90 DAYS AT A TIME
by BWW News Desk - Sep 12, 2016

'Living Life 90 Days At A Time: A Sarcoma Survivor's Journey': a sincere, honest, detailed, and sometimes even humorous recounting from the discovery of cancer to the long battle that ensued. 'Living Life 90 Days At A Time: A Sarcoma Survivor's Journey' is the creation of published author, Thom Schmenk, who spent his youth riding his bike along the shores of Lake Erie in a suburb just east of Cleveland, Ohio. After an injury ended an eighteen-year career in the fire service, he moved with his family to South Carolina. Here, he contributed another eighteen-year career in risk management and insurance. Just before retiring, Thom returned to his childhood hobby of cycling. It would become a passion and would one day lead to the discovery of a large tumor bulging out of his left hamstring. After a diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma, Thom shared his plight with a friend, a local Charleston historian and author, who was waging his own fight against prostate cancer. It was Ken Burger's encouragement that got Thom to fulfill a lifelong dream of writing a book. Thom's wife, Judy, suggested he expand the book to help and encourage others to fight on and persevere in their own cancer fight. Besides Thom and his wife enjoying their family-their two sons, their wives, and their grandchildren - he takes pleasure in swimming, reading, and trips to Lake Lure, North Carolina. He enjoys sharing his story with newly diagnosed cancer patients and working to raise funds for sarcoma research. (more...)
