A Framework for Peace





Reaction to works by D.R. Thompson

A WORLD WITHOUT WAR (essays)

"A thought-provoking collection of essays. Don is the idealist's idealist!" --Thom Hartmann, America's #1 progressive radio personality and host of THE BIG PICTURE

"World Peace has become a point of mockery at some times, but is there a real way to attain it? A World Without War is a collection of essays from D. R. Thompson, as he presents his educated opinion on how such a dream world could truly be possible in our future. With a unique writing style and plenty of ideas to further a goal of a world without national violence, A World Without War is an idealist's read on how to push forward to a world worth living in." -- Mary Cowper, Midwest Book Review

"Great new book by Don Thompson - the world through his lens brings many things unexpectedly into focus! Recommended!" -- Jane Stein, Artist, New York

TIBET DOES NOT EXIST (play)

"Stands the modern Western world on its head... SO FUNNY that it is surprising... the playwright's reticence works: Tibet is very much on your mind as you leave." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Consistently fascinating, Exist brilliantly portrays the pettiness and political correctness of academia, while leaving audiences with much to ponder on a philosophical level. It is also a timely, but not at all didactic reminder that Tibet does indeed still exist, though many in power would probably prefer we forgot it." -- Joe Bendel, ‘JB Spins’

"Startlingly prescient...Thompson touches on a number of fundamental questions about humanity in his play, along with many pertinent contemporary concerns from the Internet to capitalism to the state of academia." -- Martin Denton - ‘nytheater.com’

DEMOCRACY - A WORK IN PROGESS (play)

"DEMOCRACY: A WORK IN PROGRESS, Don Thompson's historic, philosophical meditation on civic life... looks at both the strength and fragility of participatory government."-- Jane Horwitz, THE WASHINGTON POST

"Art with the most effective messages touches you on such a profound and intimate level that it's hard to put your feelings into words. Such is the case with DEMOCRACY: A WORK IN PROGRESS, which compels audience members to not only think about politics and society, but yourself." -- N. Magruder, MARYLAND GAZETTE

"Just in time for independence day, the Maryland Ensemble Theater has revived DEMOCRACY: A WORK IN PROGRESS. Effective [and] moving... the audience gets a clear picture of democracy as an ever-evolving form of government." -- J. Wynn Rousuck, BALTIMORE SUN

L.A. BOOK OF THE DEAD (play)

"... brings home nuclear reality more than any American theater piece... without sentimentality or demagogy." -- Dan Sullivan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
