Stage Right is the weekly show that asks the question, "why are there so few conservative voices in drama and theatre?" Join us this week as we look at some putrid examples of playwriting guided by the omniscient presence of television and the left wing world view. We'll also take a look at what some of our friends across the pond have to say about right-wing theatre. Call in to speak with your host, Rocky Benasher or drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's make the conservative voice heard onstage (and off)!

BEWITCHING TALK RADIO & the CABIN GODDESS will be having a chat about a lot of things! Be it her obsession with Dracula & exorcism, what she likes on those wieners or the 38.74 foot Crocodile in the sewers of NYC you just never know what will be talked about! Of course we may have to deal with her dislike of coffee...
Karen Greco has spent close to twenty years in New York City, working in publicity and marketing for the entertainment industry. Originally from Rhode Island (she loves hot wieners from New York System, but can't stand coffee milk), she studied playwriting in college (and won an award or two).
After not writing plays for a long time, a life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she can decapitate characters with impunity.
Her first novel, Hell's Belle, was released in 2013. Tainted Blood is the second book in the best-selling Hell's Belle urban fantasy series.

Here at "Stage Right" we try to determine the reasons why the left dominates the arts (such as drama and theatre) while we conservatives have (supposedly) won the culture war. Each week "Stage Right" poses the question: "Why are there so few conservative voices in theatre?" On today's episode we will explore conservative icon Russell Kirk's essay, "The Age of Sentiments" to see how Kirk helps us see why playwriting today is on the sorry state it's in. Join us as we talk conservatives and theatre!

She received her Masters Degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco where she researched plays for her dissertation. Sanghita 6, is her first published book of dramatic material in the field of sacred dance and theater. It is a collection of six musical plays that redefine the art of playwriting, as contemporary sacred dance and theater. Each play, depicts ancient archetypes in contemporary settings with a focus on the feminine psyche. Sanghita takes us on a magical tour of ancient underground mysteries whose universal laws still live in our collective unconsciousness today. Please join us to discuss how the "Sacred Mother" guided her to find, heal and nurture her three daughters back to life and fight an unjust patriarchial system to finally, claim them as her daughters.
