Billie Holiday Theater November 2019
"WHAT'S THE STORY?"
...is the thread that runs through the life and work of James Sheldon. From his time as a newspaper and magazine reporter, when he sought to “get the scoop”and tell the story as it had just happened, to a long stint as a stock market investor, trying to predict the story of a company’s financial future, James has always been a storyteller.
Since 2007, as a playwright with nine professional productions of his work, including two in London and one Off-Broadway, he has been writing his own stories.

James has written eight plays since 2007, revealing the mythic in the mundane in a variety of settings from a remote Pacific island to the former Soviet Union to a secret federal facility for notorious white-collar criminals.
His plays have been produced in London (“A Model For Mankind” and “Shiverman”), Off-Broadway (“Reparations”) and in the northeastern United States.
If you'd like to learn more, feel free to contact James with questions, comments or ideas.
