Clive Barnes, The New York Times on "Ladyhouse Blues": “Kevin O'Morrison's "Ladyhouse Blues" at times has the haunting quality of Chekhov.” Walter Kerr in NY Times: "A playwright to be waited for" Emory Lewis in The Bergen County Record on "Dark Ages": "Here is science fiction with a heart."


Background Information

I began work in the theatre as a member of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre, trained under Eva LeGallienne and Robert Lewis. When I began to write I was grounded in the works of the great dramatists of the past and I learned from all of them. When I began to write novels they remained my mentors rather than Melville or Tolstoy or Twain, because film has put theatrical demands on the modern novel.
