Abandoned by his wayward mom, Daniel is consigned to spend summer with granddad in a Rhode Island beach town, where the locals don’t look kindly on city kids. But his hapless vacation turns around when he meets Izzy: tough-acting, back-sassing, beguiling, and taken. Gregory S. Moss’s feisty romantic comedy follows a passing fling that could last a lifetime — as impossible and charmed as an indian summer.
Tim Sanford: I’m always interested in the story of the birth of a playwright, how it happens. Where do you think it began for you?
Gregory S. Moss: I started out as an actor, as a kid, when I was like seven, doing community theater. A lot of plays with giant puppets in them, a lot of fairy tales. I also did some writing, poems and stuff, along a parallel track. And I continued doing both through college. I was studying Medieval Lit in the day and acting in student-directed [María Irene] Fornes and Sam Shepard plays at night. But separately.
