Last ninght, Sunday, Sept. 16th, 2019, I attended the Theater for the New City in the East Village of Manhattan to see a staged reading of a new play titled, "The Interrupted Journey" which I had posted to the "DNNY News Blasts" in case anyone was free to see it too. Well, I want to tell you my reaction to this new work for the theater. It turned out to be a night that I will never forget!
This new play is indeed an important work in progress on many levels. First, doing a play about the hypnotic regression of Betty and Barney Hill, a bi-racial married and loving couple, who discover the truth behind their total memory loss of a two hour period when they were driving home through the mountainous part of New Hampshire is quite a challenge in many respects. Betty and Barney recounted how they had been captured and taken aboard a UFO and examined by aliens from another planet. The Hill's accounts, based on the actual recording of their hypnotic regression sessions given to them by a respected doctor, could very well be considered proof of went they actually went through, and it makes a strong case for the credibility of their case as well as the truth the public worldwide has not been told by the mainstream news or governments. As such, their compelling story makes for a thrilling and exciting evening at the theater. Also, most importantly, this new work will open up the doors of all those millions of people who have not been informed, over many years, of the importance of UFOs and the fact that they are indeed very real, are visiting our planet, and are actively probing and examine selected individuals to collect date. This information is literally the biggest story of all time with
huge ramifications for us all.
The perfomances in this play are rock solid and a joy to watch. Betty Hill is played by Sachi Parker, who gives a truly brilliant and heart felf performance. She also happens to be the daugher of film star Shirley MacLaine and who not only looks a lot like her famous mother but has the same extraordinary acting talent as well. Barney Hill is played by Richard Pryor Jr. who brings the role to life and is totally believable and gives a layered performance. He also has a very famous parent. Guess who? Allen Zeller, who plays Dr. Simon is also very gifted and powerful actor, and is perfectly cast and is wonderful in the part.
Before the reading started I was very fortunate to meet the writers. Elizabeth Full and Joel Vig, the director Matk S. Graham, and the consulting producer Robert R. Blume. What a multi-talented winning team they all are. Peter Robins, a dear friend, an investigative writer specializing in the subject of UFOs with more than thirty-five years' experience as a writer, researcher, investigator,, lecturer and author writer, ufologist, and has beeb a lecturer at DNNY meetings was in town from up-state and also attended the reading. After the play
ended there was a Q&A and Peter and I were called up on stage to join the panel of cast members and writers to answer questions about UFO issues, and I was able to say a few well chosen words about Disclousure Network New York and give the address of our web sote. After the panel had finished people came over to me and expressed interest in our DNNY meetings and web site and I invited them to join us.
Altogether it was a win/win night. "The Interrupted Journey" is a very, very important play to look for in the future to see and to fully support. I'm quite excited about the huge potential this new play has to offer that will both inform the public with important information athat must be disseminated as well as to entertain. In my opinion not only is this play amazing theater but could very well be a great feature film as well. The message contained in this masterfu work could not be more important. Congratulations to everyone associated with this production!
