Tom Sminkey Guy Leonard & Jon Freda George Makapolous On a Darkling Plain by Norman Beim 

ON A DARKLING PLAIN was inspired by the reunion of Elia Kazan and Arthur Miller for the production of Miller's play, AFTER THE FALL which occurred 46 years ago this January. Set in 1964, ON A DARKLING PLAIN tells the story of Guy Leonard, a blacklisted Broadway star and film actor who has been driving a cab for 12 years in order to support his family. He is suddenly confronted with a dilemma: should he demean himself by appearing on TV in a commercial for toilet paper, or accept a leading role in a Broadway show staged by a director and former friend of his who named names and was responsible for not only ruining lives but causing the death of fellow actors? John Brandenburg, of The Daily Oklahoman wrote: “A comedy/drama in the best sense, with both the comedic and dramatic sides of the theatrical equation, complimenting and enriching each other…a play one could easily imagine being done on Broadway.”
