This episode features playwright and librettist Alan Olejniczak who discusses his career and experience as the first National Parks Arts Foundation playwright-in-residence in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Olejniczak is working on an audio drama about the natural history and future of Hawai‘i Island. His operatic verses and performances usually center around human impacts on the environment, but his work during his residency in the park will incorporate active volcanoes and other natural forces beyond our control.
Featured music on this episode is “Fiction Theatre” by Michael and Spider / Red Wedding.
