Other stuff:

My play “Trapped” was featured in the Reading Theater Project’s annual Fringe Festival, “Fairy Tales: Fact or Fiction?” Feb. 16-18. Reading Eagle reviewer Susan Peña said of the play:

If I were judging the festival, the hands-down winner would be Adam Richter’s witty “Trapped,” impeccably performed by Jeanette Fotis as Rapunzel, who has been given a smart phone by her prince, and Kath Godwin as her overprotective mother. It’s a tiny gem, a sly social commentary on alternative facts and conspiracy theories with no wasted words.
