In addition to his yearly visit with the Cratchit family and their world, John is a frequent participant in Fringe Festivals across the country which offer actors the unique opportunity to find audiences for their personal visions that might be out of step with the Broadway extravaganza.
Johns usual practice is to adapt his own scripts based on existing literary works, finding a novel perspective he likes before beginning with the dramatization of the work, often turning the concept on its head in the process.
He has brought us a coterie of characters over the years; there was Screwtape in 15, which required a more extensive rewrite than any other work, bringing C.S. Lewis character in line with the 21st century. And in 19 he collaborated with Kenneth Brown on Sherlock, which premiered that year at the Fringe to great acclaim.
