Ray Fulton beat death and amnesia to return to the stage in Over My Dead Body

Amnesiac and tongue-tied, Ray Fulton is struggling to rebuild his reality after a brain tumor derailed his life two years ago. In a past life, Fulton was not only a naval architect but also a regular on the Annapolis theater scene. That was before the subtle memory loss, the seizure, the incorrect diagnosis and the operation that saved his life.

Dying, Bay bard Tom Wisner keeps working to waken our souls
