The Gift (1993)
The Gift was commissioned by New American Radio and Performing Arts and was adapted from a serial bedtime story Rose told his daughter over a period of six years. It is a parable that explores the conflict between language and innocence, and between sounds and ideas, and that offers an insight into the connections between time, language, and self.
"Old radio drama....fanciful, parabolic.....wonderful sound metaphors in the service of a ontological fable ripped from the Bible..."
- Milton Reskin, private correspondance
