Kalinoski to Release New Play - "A Bear in Winter"
Richard is excited to announce that he has been working on a brand-new play, tentatively titled A Bear in Winter. His new and emerging play is centered around a fictional fired football coach named Pete Pagano, and his re-investigation of his own identity. Pete tries to rebuild his life in middle age as his mother is dying from dementia (in an assisted living facility with the name "The Meadows," of which there are none).
By several measures, Pete is haunted by tragic losses experienced in his career as a college coach and, as his mother becomes more remote and unreachable because of her insidious disease, Pete is stranded, very alone and despite his enormous pride...he reaches out to a virtual stranger for human connection.
The initial draft of the play is pending for early September. Keep a look out on this site for the latest information!
