The world premiere full production of my revised and expanded play, "City Jail," took place over Veterans' Day Weekend, November 11, 12 and 13, 2022 at the Abbey Theater of Dublin, Ohio, 5600 Post Rd, Dublin, OH 43017. I am told it was a resounding success (I thought so too)!
Performance was directed by Joe Bishara and the assembled cast was superb!
ALERT: DEC. 20 REPRISE OF CITY JAIL HAS BEEN POSTPONED!
Did you miss the World Premiere? You're in luck, because an Encore Performance will take place in November 2024 at the Abbey Theater of Dublin, Ohio! We want to redo it to get a good video version. Contact us to get ticket information; we will forward as soon as we have it.
Before presenting the full production, the Abbey Theater did two Staged Readings of this play, which were really helpful! Director Joe Bishara's troupe of talented actors brought my words to life!
Notwithstanding attendance restrictions imposed by pandemic concerns, we had over 75 attendees in June, who offered praise, constructive criticism and good questions in the lively post-reading talk-back.

The King's Cellist, an historical biographical fiction
This is the story of Henry Steckelberg, the 19th century cellist-turned farmer who abandoned a prestigious position as court musician with the King of Hanover, led the British German Legion band, and sailed to the New World to live in a democracy. He joined the Union Army and was playing in Ford's Theatre the night Lincoln was shot. He went on to perform with the New York Philharmonic for 14 years before the loss of two children in the New York cholera epidemic prompted him to take his chances farming on the frontier of Nebraska.

What they are saying about Catherine Adams
Thought provoking. - Thomas, J.
Very interesting story line from a unique perspective. - Bentine, L.
Great play! A topic that is rarely discussed with far-reaching ramifications. - Ward, K.
City Jail [is] absolutely fantastic, both in written script and production. - Ridder, W.
Excellent play! It presented a very sad side of the legal system in a very thought provoking way. What a crime that even those that win their cases often still end up as losers. Johnson, K.
What a terrific show last night!!! The actors performed it beautifully. We really enjoyed reading your program notes, too. - Harbecht, S.
A very good perspective on the play and its context.
A"must see." Hopefully it will get performed again. - Swanson, K.
Catherine Adams edited a four hundred page manuscript that I wrote. The manuscript is currently being reviewed for possible publication. All who have read it, agree that it is well written and easy to read. Without Catherine’s assistance, the manuscript would have been nowhere near the quality it is now. Her suggestions on sentence formation, paragraphing and general formatting were invaluable. She quickly grasped the subject matter and provided suggestions on how to make it more understandable for the reader. And of course her command of the English language and grammar is top level.
Catherine is easy to work with. She is very smart and efficient. I highly recommend her as an editor or co-author.
