THE SAGA OF JACK DURANT
by Mabel Leo
Mabel Leo’s first book, THE SAGA OF JACK DURANT, published in 1996, continues to surprise her. Not only is it her best seller but, in 2005, became the basis for an award-winning play, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION, written by local playwright, Terry Earp. The play ran for eighteen sold-out performances, always with patrons waiting outside hoping for no-shows, and won four ariZoni Theatre Awards. The play will be performed again at the PLAYHOUSE On The Park in Phonix April 26-May 12, 2012. Contact Mabel for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jack is back!
