Well, I've just come back from New York City and I have stories to tell and observations to make about the New York New Works Theatre Festival. I also want to share with you my thoughts on lousy playwriting (which I witnessed first-hand in NY). The question is, will my play move on to the semi-final round of the New York New Works Theatre Festival? It's in God's hands now: as of this writing I do not know where I stand. Maybe I will by show time??
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 email@example.com. Let's make the conservative voice heard onstage (and off)!

Today's show is my last before my two-week vacation, so I'm planning to tie up some loose ends before I depart. We will pick up some discussions we left off weeks ago, including how a conservative balances defending theatre yet being offended by much of the content of contemporary theatre. We'll also resume talking about our conservative brother, David Mamet. Today's show will feature words of wisdom from listeners and Facebook friends. Wish me a "bon voyage" (but never fear; I shall return on July 12!).
On today's episide we are delighted to be joined by playwright Don Milne. Don is on hand to discuss his career, specifically his play "Inherit the Wind: Overturned by Design." The play is an updated version of the classic Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee (not the famous general) piece that was made into a movie with Spencer Tracy and Fredeick March. Please join us as we discuss the reasons behind this re-working and we'll even read excerpts from the play!

Today's episode continues our investigtion of internationally famous American playwright, David Mamet. Mr. Mamet, who came out of the political closet in 2008, is now a consefvative thinker and we will look at what exactly he means by that and how it has impacted both his writing and his reception. This exploration will take a number of shows so be sure to hang with us as we read selections from Mr. Mamet's book "The Secret Knowledge" (2011), listen to interview excerpts, and talk to Mamet scholars and theatre practitioners. Speed the Plow and tune in!
