Richard Engling "Romeo and Juliet Keep Their Eyes on the Prize"

 

The next book in Richard Engling's Dwayne Finnegan series, Romeo and Juliet Keep Their Eyes on the Prize, is releasing and we are hosting the launch event at The Book Cellar!

About the Book:

In this hilarious follow-up to Give My Regards to Nowhere, Chicago director Dwayne Finnegan has another crack at the big time--if only his production of Romeo and Juliet can shine. However, Dwayne shares rehearsal space with a cult that takes trips on LSD-like ayahuasca and believes Dwayne’s production is evil. The cult sabotages him. His actors rebel. His publicist gets entangled with a loan shark. Bones are broken, the production drops into chaos, Dwayne’s marriage hangs by a thread, but despite it all, the show must go on.

About the Author:

Richard Engling’s writing career began in high school when his coffee shop theatre group needed material to perform, and he was elected to write it. He’s spent a lifetime writing and performing, paying his bills as a teacher, truck driver, and copywriter, while performing as an actor, drummer in a jazz quartet, and director. He founded Polarity Ensemble Theatre in Chicago in 2004 and served as its Artistic Director for twelve long and confusing years. His dystopian detective thriller, Body Mortgage, was published by Penguin Books USA and Headline UK and has been rereleased in a revised version by Polarity Ensemble Books. His novel, Visions Of Anna, (Polarity Ensemble Books) and play, "Anna in the Afterlife", appeared in 2014 as part of the ambitious Afterlife Trilogy. His first Dwayne Finnegan novel, Give My Regards to Nowhere, appeared last year. His plays have been produced in the US and England, and he continues to work as an actor, playwright, and novelist.
