International interest in Smith's new and original Shakespearean-style verse plays has grown dramatically this year, and Ryan will soon be in New York to promote a local production of his first verse play 'Sweet Love Adieu' (www.sweetloveadieu.com), touring across New Jersey, Connecticut and Manhattan. 'Sweet Love Adieu' is the first of it's kind in nearly four hundred years - a full-length, five act romantic comedy (inspired by Romeo and Juliet) written entirely in rhyming iambic Elizabethan-style couplets.
