 The next selection in the Off the Page series of monthly play readings at Sierra Madre Playhouse will be a new stage adaptation 
of William Saroyan’s classic American novel, The Human Comedy. The playwright/adaptor is Thom Babbes.

"I thought a fellow would never cry when he got to be grown up, but it seems as if that’s when a fellow starts.” – Homer Macauley

Set in warfront America 1942, this coming-of-age tale tells the story of Homer Macaulay, a 15-year-old boy who delivers telegrams 
at night to make money for his family. During the course of two days, Homer grows from an idealistic boy to a mature young man as 
he struggles with the unfairness of the world around him and the pain of families to whom he delivers the War Department’s death 
notices. But in the midst of the decaying idealism of small town America, and the loneliness of growing up, Homer finds hope in 
humanity through Mr. Grogan, the old alcoholic telegrapher and Mr. Spangler, the manager of the telegraph office who becomes a 
father-figure. In these men, Homer learns to see the goodness in people no matter how desperate or broken they may be. He also 
finds the true meaning of home. In the end, it is a timeless American tale that celebrates our common decency. In our present society 
that is so divisive, THE HUMAN COMEDY has a lot to show us about our humanity and the important things that bring us together. 

Thom Babbes’ screenplays for the films Body Chemistry and Deadly Dreams were produced by Roger Corman’s Concorde- New 
Horizrons company. Babbes also wrote The Audition and co-wrote X-Treme Weekend, two prize-winning shorts. He is a resident 
director at Actors Co-Op in Hollywood, where his credits include Wait Until Dark, Summer and Smoke, A Man for All Seasons,and 
Ah, Wilderness! He is a graduate of Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts.

Christian Lebano directs the reading. He is the producer of the Off the Page series and the Artistic Director of Sierra Madre Playhouse, 
where he recently directed his own adaptation of Little Women.

William Saroyan (1908-1972) won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1940 for his play The Time of Your Life. He won the Academy
