Craig Peters: "T. Stedman Harder"
After collecting degrees from Stanford and UC Riverside, Craig Peters*† set out to fulfill his lifelong dream: to become a starving artist. He was immediately successful. As an actor, he burst onto the stage, then blazed his way into films, TV, and commercials. Inexplicably, he has spent an inordinate slice of his career on hiatus. As an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, he has had the privilege of seeing his plays performed on stages from coast to coast. Yet in a cruel twist of fate, his brilliant screenplays have languished for years in Option Hell, though in the words of the author, they “reek with promise.” While conceding that A Moon for the Misbegotten isn’t intended to be a laugh riot, he hopes to infuse the play with a touch of much needed levity with his portrayal of the misguided millionaire Harder. On playing comedic roles, he offers this sage advice, “You have to feel funny when you step onto the stage. Looking funny is not enough.”
