Jim plays Jim
I've noticed that in programs he is usually listed as James Thomas Patrick, a moniker that seems to fit his dignified looks, but I like him as plain Jim -- especially as Jim Bright, the hero of my novel, Reunion at the Wetside. Jim Bright is one of the more complex characters I've ever written. He's a liar and something of a nasty jokester, and his politics are diametrically opposed to everything I believe in; yet there's something inherently likeable about him -- so likeable, in fact, that the smartest and most decent woman in the book falls in love with him.
In the one reading we've already done Jim played that Jim beautifully. I think he even looks the part, (voted most handsome in high school many years ago). While looking the part is not necessary in a staged reading, it doesn't hurt.
I invite you to come see Jim Patrick and the rest of the fine cast interpret selections from my book.
Also featuring Jennie Jenks, Chris Cantrell and Dennis Rolly.
And by-the-way, Jim is not British. He's from San Francisco.
