Mirrors by John O’Brien
View From The Stage Inc. of Crestview

A man spends an evening with his ordinary family. Yet, is it ordinary? It’s ideal… but is it real? How far can a man’s mind bend to shield himself from the present, the past… or perhaps, the truth of himself?

An ordinary man spends an ordinary evening with his ordinary family. Yet, it doesn’t quite feel ordinary at all. There’s friendly banter from teens, an adoring wife and an eldest son asking advice. It’s ideal… but is it real? A psychological mystery about how far a man’s mind can bend to shield himself from the truth. Is it the truth of the present, the truth of the past… or perhaps, the truth of himself?

Poems for People Who Hate Poetry!
The Live Bard

Is modern poetry too mauldin? Too obscure? Too self-centered? Well sit down and buckle up because these tales, will recall classic poems which explore human foibles or celebrate bawdy revelry.

For the past thirteen years, Peter Thomas has traveled the country, from the Gulf Coast to the Upper Great Lakes, appearing before audiences as “The Live Bard,” giving dramatic recitations of classic works of “narrative verse,”-- poems that tell a story.
For this upcoming performance, this “affable iconoclast” will recite, often in meter and rhyme, venerated stories that offer poignant insights into the human condition. He may good-naturedly pick on a modern poet or two, and will no doubt include some of his own curmudgeonly tales in the mix.
