In Summer “Rain” Sinclair’s Born Again Bohemian, a personal story of shedding parental baggage, the playwright’s mom dismisses the absence of Sinclair’s hippie-dippie dad, saying, “We have plans for our life, Summer, and they don’t include him.”
Eventually, the plans of a grown-up Sinclair do include the man she calls Dadio. And after her Hollywood Fringe Festival debut, she has much bigger aspirations for him and the whole family: She dreams of taking her own-woman show and its characters to the New York stage, and eventually back to Hollywood — this time in the form of movie script.
Far-fetched? Possibly. But that’s just how it happened for now-famous Greek bride Nia Vardalos, Sinclair pointed out, when I talked with her about possibilities that may await after the Fringe.
