The Clarence Brown Theatre: "People Where They Are"

Clarence Brown Theatre

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.
