TIM KELLY (1931-1998) was a prolific and successful American writer, with more than three hundred plays to his credit. His works (which include comedies, dramas, one-acts, mysteries, melodramas, children's shows and musicals) have been produced by New York's Studio Ensemble Theatre, Royal Court Rep, Apple Corps, Manhattan Theatre Club, Los Angeles Actor's Theatre, Aspen Playwright's Festival, the Seattle Repertory Company, and countless other theatres around the world. A television and screenwriter as well, Kelly penned such cult films as Cry of the Banshee (1970) and Sugar Hill (1974). Critics may ignore or loathe him, but his influence over amateur theatre is still felt today. His work continues to be performed everywhere. Constantly.

I've always been a fan of Tim's vast amount of writing - so I wanted to write a book on this writing machine!
