"The Yale Diaries" is a political comedy about the unlikely friendship between George W. Bush and John Kerry at Yale University in 1966. Kerry and Bush have taken an immediate disliking to one another. Little do they know they share an inextricable bond that makes all else in their lives trivial. That bond is the Brotherhood of Death, the Skull & Bones Society. When Margaret Lerner, a beautiful Yale undergrad, dies suspiciously, George and John become close friends while hiding the truth behind her murder. Cameos are made by Howard Dean, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Rodham when the only party they subscribed to was the kind that had lots of alcohol.

Estrada, the son of an Army Officer and a stage actress, is the youngest of a theatrical family that includes performing artist Jade Esteban Estrada (ICONS, A Lullaby for Ryan: The History of HIV/AIDS in America) and playwright Celeste Angela Estrada (Tortilla Heaven, Pico de Gallo). All three have had plays produced in New York. Joey Reynolds of the nationally-syndicated WOR Radio warns, "Don't mess with that family!"

Show Business Weekly calls him "...a maverick writer-actor-director." The Austin-American Statesman writes, "...engaging throughout." Dennis Safren, Literary Director of First Stage and author of the critically-acclaimed play "Straights!" hails Estrada as " of the most exciting young voices in theatre."

The playwright has had seven productions of his plays mounted in New York and Los Angeles including "You Ain't No Johnny Cash" and "God, Man, & Stan." Both plays are to be published later this year by Desert Road Publishing.

In a recent radio interview, Estrada expounded on the genesis of the play, stating, "It was as simple as seeing an actor on stage who looked like a young John Kerry. Naturally, it got me thinking. I figured with much of the hard part of casting out of the way, all I had to do was write a good play."
