Know Theatre Presents 'Of the Fields, Lately'

Know Theatre of Binghamton is presenting David French’s play ‘Of the Fields, Lately’. David French is held in the same esteem in Canada as Tennessee Williams is in the United States.  His cycle of plays about the Mercer family is presented with great regularity there.  Tim Gleason talks about his role in the play. We also get him to reluctantly tell about a recent award he received. http://wskg.org/audio/0206fields.mp3

Southern Tier Actors Read perform Chekov's "Uncle Vanya"

Director Bernie Sheredy speaks with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about directing Anton Chekov’s Uncle Vanya. Sheredy has found a translation of this classic play that he feels captures the spirit of the original. “Vanya is one of the most — I think — fully realized of his comedic masterpieces. It’s certainly my favorite. And to have a chance to work on it, even in just a reading, though as a reading it’s incredibly challenging, because Vanya’s a stretch for any actor.”
