Katherine James interviews Joyce Carol Oates about how Tone Clusters was created -- starting from a poem that shaped itself into a play. https://theatricum.secure.force.com/t...

Tone Clusters is written by the renowned author Joyce Carol Oates. Ms. Oates is well known in the literature world for her short stories, novels and poetry; three of her novels were nominated for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. We are honored to have one of Oates' drama pieces center stage at Theatricum Botanicum this fall. Oates will also be attending the opening of Tone Clusters on September 5, and leading a panel discussion after the play.

Tone Clusters is a gripping drama about the parents of an alleged killer, and how they are forced to deal with the media. Frank and Emily Gulick's son Carl has been arrested for the sadistic murder of Edith Kaminsky. They are adamant that their son is innocent, and what unfolds is a clash between the worldly, condescending media and two individuals' desperate attempts to claim ownership of their own lives.

Katherine James and Alan Blumenfeld of ACT of Communication® will be hosting post-show conversations each week, qualifying for LIVE Ethics CLE credits for attorneys. The focus of these discussions is on how attorneys ethically handle a case swarmed by the media.
