Today on Home Grown, Clinton and Leslie take a look at two different upcoming university theater productions. First, Doug Grissom Associate Professor of Playwriting from UVA’s Department of Drama visits the show for the first time. The UVA Music Library contacted him and asked if he’d like to set some plays in the library as part of their Making Noise Series. That request has led to Welcome to the Music Library: An Evening of Short Plays — short works directed by Grissom and written by his playwriting class. Then Layla Ophelia and Lissa Fulton join us from Mary Baldwin University Theatre. They are both actors in MBU’s upcoming production of David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette. In between Clinton and Leslie turning a running gag into a marathon, Layla and Lissa talk about what it’s like to play in 18th Century royal France. It’s town talking to the gown here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
