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

A Drama Examines an Artist's Definition Of Success

Know Theatre presents Donald Margulies’ play ‘Sight Unseen’.  Jeff Tagliaferro plays an artist so successful that collectors pay up front for paintings he has yet to begin. But he feels that the well of inspiration is running dry, so he visits the former girlfriend (Amoreena Wade) who was his Muse when he started becoming famous.  She is married now to a stable, but unexciting husband (Tim Gleason) and the battle lines are set. http://wskg.org/audio/sightunseen.mp3
