E.
written and performed by Richard Hoehler

E. image

E. is award-winning playwright and actor Richard Hoehler’s accolade to his longtime mentor and friend, Edith (E.) Speziali. The worlds of Oscar Wilde and Spalding Gray collide in a most serendipitous way as a remarkable twenty-one-year relationship is rendered with irreverent wit, bold pronouncements, and a few choice cuss words.
