San Francisco playwright Bill Nuerge has an exceptional feel for dialogue. He gets right to the point. Every word has a purpose. This, and his talent for uncovering fascinating and undertold stories makes him a writer not just with something to say but with something to teach. He has written a riveting play on President James Knox Polk. Yes, riveting. And, how many people know a lot about President Polk?I hope you will all soon have a chance to see this play when it goes into production. Too good to miss. Listen to Bill talk about his play; consider it a preview. And, for his love letter he reads a short perfect one he wrote to a friend a long time ago and then saw it surface at his friends funeral. A feel for written expression is a feel for written expression no matter where it may come to light.
