About my one-person shows -updated

  My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written lots […]

Rise up for the unemployed this Friday

Thanks to the Partnership for Civil Justice‘s FOIA request, we now know that the FBI has been surveilling the Occupy movement since August of 2011 (before there was any occupation). For anybody who’s ever been part of any activist movement with traction, this confirms what they already inuited  was true–ever since the days of COINTELPRO […]
