TEN DAYS IN NEWARK
A story of first love, first heartbreak & the radical politics of the 1960's
I find old photographs. A letter arrives.
Marshall & Barbara.
I track down stories of a wild night.
Memories and music make me a time traveler.
I finally speak to Louis.
Love and loss.
Ten Days in Newark was produced by
Scott Shapleigh and Binnie Klein.
Music from Binnie Klein, Scott Shapleigh, and H.L. Tandberg.
Special thanks to Marshall, Eben and Louis, and all our interviewees who generously gave their time and opened their hearts to us for this project.
This production wouldn't be the same without the City of Newark, New Jersey and Weequahic High School, Philip Roth, Dave Van Ronk, Harlan Ellison, Mary Karr, Claire Dederer, Meghan Daum, Ruth Ware, and a host of memoir writers who gave me courage. Special thanks to author Andre Aciman, who understands the idea of a "soul-lover" more than anyone ... and thanks to our friends and family for their patience while we disappeared for a while (okay ... a few years!)
Ten Days in Newark is dedicated to Gary and Barbara.
