    The Empty Seats (play)

    In a city in the Middle East two prostitutes are on trial.  While prosecutor tries to prove that they are guilty, they defend themselves. One of the prostitutes has been taken out from her city when she has been a child and her city has been destroyed by an earthquake. The other one has been a poor child working for a family and has been raped over and over. They tell about their lives and persuade the court that they had no choice but to be prostitute and if prostitution is a crime why the seats of the men who have participated are empty in the court?

    By the way the language of the author (Mahin) is Persian.

    We are instinctively creative beings.  Through the transformative power of dramatherapy, we gain adaptability and create a positive, empowered attitude toward obstacles, physical or mental struggles, hardships, and trauma.  Our vision is a world where “detours” in life are everyday blessings.

    As we enter the new millennium, the world is faced with massive challenges as well as opportunities to solve them.  Communication is a very powerful tool. Words have the power to engage, to move ideas from the fuzzy margins to the focused center of our attention, and to inspire us to think in new ways. Theatre, arts, expressive communication, language, and learning can move us to the center of life’s stage.  Gutless & Grateful empowered me to move forward and spark a sense of rejuvenation, renewal, and hope from within."

    Or on Huffington Post: "Forever Gutless, Forever Grateful"

    "Eight years after my coma, I was finally headed towards a life of medical stability. I learned through experience that things can heal with time, and that’s not always the prettiest or easiest way. It was an extremely difficult journey, yet when I started to put together a musical of my life, things felt like they had happened for a reason. Now I had a story to tell, a message to share."

    The Moghul Hedonist, published by Editions Dedicaces, is fourth in the series of the War of Moghul Succession in India. Emperor Jahangir reigned in name alone, while his empress Nur Jahan possessed the power to rule the emperor and the empire.  Jahangir, a mystic and a naturalist laid kingdoms at the feet of his empress, abandoning himself completely to his love for wine, both from the nature's cups and from gold flagons.  His hunger and passion for beauty in nature lured him to the paradise in Kashmir five times during his twenty-two years of reign splintered with intrigues and rebellions.  The beautiful gardens of Kashmir, some built by Nur Jahan and some restored by her, became the sanctuary of this Moghul couple, away from the royal burdens of the court intrigues.  With the exception of Jahangir's sons rebelling against him, peace and prosperity flourished during his artistic and sensuous reign.  Industry and commerce yielded great revenues. The art of painting in detail and accuracy reached its culmination under his patronage and indulgence. The poets basked under the sunshine of the emperor's generosity, and literature attained the heights of nobility and veneration.  Though cultural development rose to its peak, the emperor's health failed due to excessive drinking, his bane and challenge.  Two major challenges finished his life.  The rebellion of his favorite son styled as Shah Jahan, and one hundred days of captivity by his faithful vizier, Mahabat Khan. The last blow to his frail health came from the hands of a tragedy, when his son Prince Perwiz died of his own indulgence in drinking.  At the age of fifty-eight, when Jahangir died, Shah Jahan ascended the much-coveted throne with great pomp.  Not in the least suspecting that he would know grief shortly, wedding only Taj Mahal as his lost love and bride. 


    The main contribution of this sequel toward scholarly pursuits lies in the fact that the emperor Jahangir steps out of the pages of history as a scholar himself.  A man of varied talents and interests, his observations about plant and animal life are worth exploring, if not his passion for art and literature.

    Soldier's Heart by Tammy Ryan, Broadway Play Publishing, Inc.

    "Portrayls of soldiers wrecked by war date to the ancient Greeks (see Aeschylus), but Ms. Ryan adeptly reworks the time-tested recipe from a woman's perspective to make it seem fresh again...Briskly written in brief scenes that easily flash back and forth...the subject of sexual assault in the military gives the play weight and merit.  Ms. Ryan deftly layers critical incidents that culminate in a forceful climax...Frank colloquial language delivers a strong sense of spontaneity."

    My article about Shuffle Along was published in the May/June 2016 issue of The Dramatist Magazine. In the article I talk about the original Shuffle Along, whose book was written by my great uncle Flournoy E. Miller. My article includes an exchange of letters between Jack Viertel and August Wilson about a possible revival of the original Shuffle Along.

    PLAY NICE!, a full-length drama inspired by Jean Genet's THE MAIDS. A great play for high schools, colleges and universities especially since the four characters range in age from 12 to 18. But it is in no way a play for children. 

    PLAY NICE! ran Off-Broadway in New York City. Published by Original Works Publishing. 2016.
