by Kenneth Robbins

Into the lives of Tyrone “T Bone” and Teresa Stakes come a new neighbor and a mysterious manila envelope. Is it fate or coincidence that these two things occur on the same day? The neighbor is Bonnie, an exotic dancer. And in the envelope? A file left in the possession of T Bone, a 22-year-old journalism student at SMU. This file, stolen from the Dallas Police Department 10 years earlier by the student’s father, himself a policeman, is intended to be delivered to the District Attorney in New Orleans. But the policeman, sensing a serious threat, placed the file in a safety-deposit box just before his death; the box was paid up for ten years. And so, the coincidence of the play begins, the file is in our hero’s hands, and Teresa is in the grasp of the mysterious Bonnie. All in all, The Dallas File is a plunge into the conspiratorial world that continues to define the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Is nobody safe? Are there things in life that are too dangerous to know?
