My latest drama is the first play in a trilogy called "The Grinder".  It tells the story of an aging exotic dancer, and the affect of having been an abandoned child has had on her life.   

We've grown accustomed to children who have been abandoned by fathers, as it is quite common. There are children whose fathers have never played a part in their lives nor have ever seen their children, as well as the fathers who have and still walk away.  There are children who have been abandoned by their mothers, and who have even been "abandoned" while still in their mother's physical "care".  The impact on children cannot be underestimated, for it at the root of a myriad of problems in our society.  

That is our topic.  Do call in and share your thoughts.
