A year ago, Raymond J. Barry submitted his play "Once in Doubt" to the Los Angeles Theatre Center--and it was rejected. "They thought the non-sequitur scenes like me jumping on the light-bulb glass saying, 'I wish something exciting would happen,' wouldn't work," says the Obie-winning actor. "The literary critic wrote a scathing review." Undeterred, Barry bowed the play last January at the Cast Theatre, followed by a summer run at the People's Light in Pennsylvania. Suddenly, the show was hot.

Soon after Lloyd Richards settled into his new jobs as Dean of the Yale School of Drama and artistic director of the Yale Repertory Theatre in 1979, he got a call from his old acting buddy, James Earl Jones. "He congratulated me on my appointment," recalls Richards, "but I said, 'It doesn't end there. If I go to Yale, you go, too. As do a few other people.' " Richards wasn't joking. Jones played in Shakespeare's "Timon of Athens," put Richards in touch with Athol Fugard, then appeared in Yale's American premiere of Fugard's "A Lesson From Aloes."

The film, co-written with Jenniphr's housemate Duncan North, starred Donal Logue as an underachieving, frequently stoned womanizer and Greer Goodman as the one who got away. "Jenniphr went to NYU film school. I went to Yale drama school. And we were sitting around doing nothing," Greer Goodman recalls. "I thought, 'Instead of waiting for some job on some sitcom, why don't I write with my sister who went to film school and made movies that won awards?

Several months ago I went to the emergency room for a respiratory problem. I was treated and released the same night. I was a self-pay patient. I requested the detailed billing to compare with my medical record and found several errors, including duplicated charges and overcharged items. When I discussed this with the billing department they refused to admit it. What is my next step in this situation? It's critical that you put your dispute with the hospital in writing, clarifying that your itemized bill contains items or services that have been billed in error, says Pat Palmer, founder of Medical Billing Advocates of America, a consumer advocacy group in Roanoke, Va. List each item you're disputing and request that the inaccurate charges be removed or that a written response with documentation to support the charges be sent to you. If you've hit a brick wall with the billing department, escalate your complaint, says Martin Rosen, an executive vice president of Health Advocate, a patient advocacy organization based in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Address your letter to either the chief financial officer or chief executive officer of the hospital, or both, and indicate that you've tried and failed to settle the matter with the billing department.
