Jack J. Berry

JACK J. BERRY believes that a play should do at least one (if not all) of three things:

1) get the audience to laugh,
2) cause the audience to think,
3) encourage the audience to be better people

He got started writing plays relatively late in life when he was IN community plays but saw so many other plays that, in his mind, did not do any of those three things. He is the author of eight published plays.
