Skeele's play to be translated into Hindi for Cineplay


March 22, 2019

David Skeele, a Slippery Rock University professor of theatre, sold the Hindi-language rights to his play, "Dark North" to Citoc, a motion picture company in Mumbai, India.

Citoc will translate the play into Hindi and create a "Cineplay," which is described by Citoc as a proprietary format that "presents timeless stories from theater as a digitally-immersive experience," and as "a purist approach to storytelling" instead of recorded theater.

"Dark North" is a 55-minute "supernatural horror" play written by Skeele about the exploits of Daniel Dark North, a television psychic who has made a career out of communing with the dead.
