The Clarence Brown Theatre is celebrating the world premiere of an original play commissioned by the CBT, called People Where They Are. The play depicts a particular period in the history of the Highlander Folk School in Tennessee, now the Highlander Research and Education Center, and although the play tells a Tennessee story, the subject matter and dramatic themes relate to the past, and present, of the entire nation. WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper spoke with playwright Anthony Clarvoe and director Cal MacLean.
