Binghamton University Presents Amy Herzog’s ‘Belleville’

Binghamton University Theatre Department presents Amy Herzog’s thriller ‘Belleville’. Director Anne Brady talks about this 2013 Drama Desk Award-winning play, having her actors learn appropriate accents, and the very detailed set. Because it’s a thriller we try not to give away too many plot points. http://wskg.org/audio/belleville.mp3
