Synopsis: "Life is Mostly Straws" centers around David and Noah, two brothers
who shared a troubled childhood, during which they relied upon each other for
survival. Although successful by all outward signs and still very close, the fear
and self-doubt of their early days lie just beneath the surface of their apparent
confidence. As well, they have made words their weapon of choice. "Life is
Mostly Straws" is a literate play, where one character uses language like a
scalpel while the other wields it like a bludgeon, but each understands its power.

About Richard Manley: After two decades of success as a copywriter and advertising executive, Richard Manley started a second career writing stage plays. He rediscovered his passion for the sound of the language and its potential to entertain and provoke and inspire.
