I’m currently writing a monologue as a contribution to this year’s Chester Drama Society’s new production ‘Ruby Zwicker’s Recipe for Hodge Podge …and things you can do with a fish’. I’m drawing from interviews that I did in 2003 with long-time resident and story teller of Indian Point, Max Zwicker. (Max died in the spring of 2010). Max had an amazing memory and a clear resonant voice that fell and keened with the sad stories of loss or rang through the chimney pipes of his kitchen woodstove with the joy he felt in living. For those in the know: it’s the one about his mother’s pig!
