No Harm Done contains the text of three short plays, each an exploration of some aspect of a disease. They are: Closer & Closer Apart, Alzheimer Disease; Fade to Light, Stargardt, a form of macular blindness; and The Last Dance, Parkinson Disease. The plays themselves, and Stickland’s introductions to them, comprise the first component of the book, writings by experts in the field comprise the second section, and the third component is a guide to playwriting based on teachings the author has been engaged in for decades. This section also includes a how-to approach to writing a play for a specific cause or event. The book will be of interest not only to theatre practitioners and students of playwriting, but to students and professionals (doctors, caregivers, therapists, et al) in the medical field as well.
A reclusive and eccentric concert pianist is drawn back into the real world when he agrees to give piano lessons to a seven-year-old girl, while at the same time preparing to perform the 2nd Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto.
