Michael K. White is one half of the semi-legendary playwriting team Broken Gopher Ink, authors of forty play productions, including fifteen off-Broadway runs that cloaked White with a bogus literary credibility he misuses to this day. His low cholesterol mega monologue play, My Heart And the Real World ran for almost 2 years in New York City, enabling the authors to eat at John's Pizzeria. Website: www.brokengopher.com
