This is a clip from a staged reading of "Time Limit!" which I did at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum Complex on May 16, 2011. The venue was an actual battleship. Below, you can read the original ad for this reading, which was published on the Intrepid's website. The play is about Korean War prisoners and battlefield trauma. I play a soldier who gets caught lying by his superior officers. The clip presented here is the climax of the play.
Intrepid and Times Square Playwrights present, Time Limit, a historical drama
Set just after the Korean War, Time Limit deals with the brutal decisions often forced on prisoners of war and the immense difficulties of balancing one’s humanity with duty in an environment where the rules may no longer apply.
Time Limit was originally produced on Broadway just after the war, with a cast that included Arthur Kennedy and Richard Kiley. It was subsequently turned into an acclaimed film directed by Karl Malden and starring Richard Widmark and Richard Basehart with most of its scenes being filmed in Fort Jay on Governor’s Island in New York City. The reading will begin at 7:00pm and is FREE and open to the Public.
