Offscript, American Theatre’s flagship podcast for a number of years, is back as a Facebook Live chat with the magazine’s editors and special guests as well as an audio podcast.
On this episode, we speak to TheatreWorks Silicon Valley artistic director Tim Bond about directing August Wilson’s How I Learned What I Learned and Gem of the Ocean. He discusses the challenges of running a theatre during COVID, recent changes in the American theatre’s consciousness, especially around racial justice, and the transcendent nature of August Wilson’s stories.
