Contribution to SA theatre, film, media and/or performance

He starred in Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? together with fellow American actors Cavada Humphrey and Fred Sadoff, and English actress Karel Gardner in 1963. Taubie Kushlick staged this production which was set to play at the Port Elizabeth City Hall, an Indian theatre in Durban and the University Great Hall in Johannesburg, but controversy over the blasphemous language saw an early close for the production.

He wrote and, with Cavada Humphrey, starred in Dear Liar for Kushlick-Gluckman.

His Dear Liar was staged at The Blue Fox, starring Diane Wilson and Hugh Rouse, in 1972.

Pieter Toerien presented his play Dear Love at the André Huguenet Theatre in 1988.
