Play By Michael Hollinger
Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his secretary Myra continues to take dictation. Attacked by skeptics, the press and Woolsey’s jealous widow, Myra sets out to prove she is more than an artful forger. Is she trying to steal Wooley’s legacy now that she cannot have his love, or might she truly possess a gift the world cannot understand?
