The Baltimore Theatre Project... brings back many memories...
I travelled to Baltimore back in the mid 1970's specifically to take a 
workshop offered during the TNT (The New Theatre Festival) with the 
amazing Mime Troupe playwright, Joan Holden. While there I met the 
founders of England's Welfare State company. Talk about giant puppets! 
I knew Willem Dafoe from his pre movie star days at Theatre X in 
Milwaukee, and he had joined the NYC Wooster Group. I set out walking 
to find the Theatre Project to see their show. I got very lost but was 
lucky enough to accidently run into Willem, who took me to the theatre 
where they were performing RUMSTICK ROAD, part of a trilogy based upon 
the somewhat disturbing family life of Spaulding Gray, prior to his 
monolog career. Willem introduced me to Gray...

I didn't meet TP founder Phil Arnoult until later when he was visting 
Milwaukee. What a character! Always wondered what became of him and 
what the Theatre project became.
