Independent Lens Episode: "The Loss of Nameless Things"

Season 7, Episode 16
Episode Synopsis: A moving profile of playwright Oakley Hall III, a founder of the Lexington Conservatory Theater in New York, whose promising career was cut short when he suffered brain damage in a fall from a bridge. Director Bill Rose's film examines Hall's work and includes comments from Hall's friends, family members, and others who know him. “What happened to Oakley was almost a Greek drama,” says poet George Crane. “It was genius or nothing, and it seemed at the end, that it had to come to nothing.”
