Keith Parker Weygandt
1951 - 2016
"Keith is no longer with us--but he is. He always will be a presence to his friends. Generous beyond the norm, kind to many who owe him a great debt--he gave more than he got back. Ferociously devoted to new writing, and Washington playwrights are in his debt. If anyone helped many a struggling talent--he did. With humor, irony and yes civility. Unless confronted with the spectre of Bad Art. Then he could be caustic, acerbic funny. But never mean-spirited. Always with a real sense of fun. Of what things could be. By rights he should have headed a new play program at the Kennedy Center broadening his Goals. Destiny lead him to a theatre on 14th Street where he did much good work. So Goodbye for now old friend. Colleague. Actor. Literary Advisor. And one of the best conversationalists in the world. Good bye Herr Weygandt.
