The Cherry Arts presents an audio walking play, ‘Storm Country’. Based on the novel ‘Tess of the Storm Country’ story set in Ithaca by Ithaca author Grace Miller White it tells the story of squatters living in the swamp that is now the Ithaca waterfront. Director Samuel Buggeln tells us how an audio walking play works, and how reconstruction of the waterfront will make it impossible to do this play again in the same location. http://wskg.org/audio/storm.mp3
