Explore the literary mind of author and playwright J. Ajlouny at 8 p.m. EST tonight on the Voice of Indie Podcast, hosted by Beem Weeks and Stephen Geez.
Author of Who Said That? and more than a dozen books and plays, J. Ajlouny holds a B.A. in Journalism from Wayne State University and a J.D. from Michigan State University.
He founded the Federal Bureau of Entertainment (FBE) to develop and produce one-person stage shows featuring prominent British actors.
Now focusing on touring theatre projects and Great Lakes history research, he is a writer and editor of humor, pop-reference, essays, and assorted arcana. He lives in Detroit.
Few men have endured the indignity of having their very existence challenged as thoroughly as William Shakespeare, late of Stratford-upon-Avon.
From scholars to amateur enthusiasts, many cannot bring themselves to believe he wrote his own body of work.
Playwright J. Ajlouny presents the arguments for and against, all statements and proofs drawn from the historical record.
Everybody must decide for himself, but The Trial of William Shakespeare makes the controversy both intriguing and fun.
In this boisterous but sensitive drama, playwright J. Ajlouny looks beyond public image to find the heart of this young woman thrust wildly into fame as a sex symbol.
Presented as a play-in-the-making within a play, Marilyn, Norma Jean and Me weaves biography with humor to explore the movie star’s widely speculated plan to leave Hollywood for Broadway.
The author imagines her innocence and vulnerability, her friendliness and loyalty, even as the public image threatens to steal her humanity.
This play is a must-see or read for fans of film and stage, not just because it is so good, but for its powerful way of finding the real Norma Jean in the legend known as Marilyn Monroe.
