The Line Forms to the Rear

 Performed by Bud Coleman at national convention
of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education,
August 2008.

Yeomans felt betrayed when directors and actors
edited his plays because they were too pornographic. He completed numerous other scripts (Malibu CanyonSwamp PlayA Conversation for the Duke and Duchess of WindsorOne Two Boy ManWet PaintStool PlayPrologue and Seven DialoguesTony and JimThe ReverendHibiscusAutumn DialogueEleventh Street Lady, and Rest in Peace, Queen, or Berma Returns to the Stage), but since he was independently wealthy, he had no economic need to have them produced.
