A production of her play Our Suburb, which is about Skokie people, and is set during the 1970s at the time the Nazis planned a march on Skokie--which serves as a backdrop to the play's events--has been reviewed in the Washington Post.
We caught up briefly with Cloud during the holidays.
Patch: How long will the show run in Washington? Darrah Cloud: Through January 12.
Where do you live now?
Do you visit Skokie much?
Yes, but my parents are gone now.
Are there any plans for a Chicago production of your show?
I'm trying. It is my dream to have it done there.
Have you written other plays?
Many. I have had a long career in theatre and television.
Do you have any more plays in the works?
Always. Working now on a musical based on lives of Mary Kay and Estée Lauder.
