MOORHEAD - A Fargo playwright is over the moon at having one of his works produced Down Under.

Richard Zinober found out in February that the Owl and Cat Theatre in Melbourne, Australia, would stage his play "Heretics."

The two-week run started March 20 and wraps today.

Zinober, who teaches playwriting and screenwriting at Minnesota State University Moorhead, says last fall he saw that the troupe was asking for submissions online and sent his script.

He will not attend the first professional production of the play, but says having it produced is "gratifying" after the play presented and workshopped for a few years.
