Irwin Hahn


Brooklyn Bridge by Joseph Stella

1967. New York City. The Summer of Love . . .  Or not.

Ring-O-Levio! is a street game with two sides. Let’s call one side “The Hunters” and the other side “The Prey”. It’s been said that there are two sides to every story. I’m about to tell you one.


About the playwright:
In 1966, Irwin’s parents asked him what he would like as a Bar Mitzvah present. Irwin replied, “A typewriter.” “Why a typewriter?” his parents asked. “Because I won’t need another fountain pen.” At his Bar Mitzvah party, Irwin received 18 fountain pens and one typewriter. Irwin has been hunting and pecking ever since.
