THE MIND'S EYE THEATRE

The Mind's Eye Theatre was a commercial cassette producing company devoted to classical drama, and directed by Robert Lewis. He commissioned scripts but directed and did sound production himself. Listed are plays which I scripted and performed but did not edit or oversee technical production. The one exception was a six-part series of Bram Stoker's Dracula, for which I took full responsibility, including being the vampire himself. The music seemed appropriate although it was necessary to choose it from the set of recorded options that Mind's Eye had contracted.

As to my other contributions to Mind's Eye, I am reminded that in most entertainments the outcome is the offspring of many hands, for which I made various contributions. As the famous butler in early films, Arthur Treacher, is credited for saying: " I read my lines, took my money, and went home." For this series of consigned radio dramas, with a few exceptions, I took Mr. Treacher's words for advice.
