Now in its third year, The Women's Voices Theater Festival features works by female playwrights at 24 theaters across Washington, D.C.
Guest Host: Marc Fisher
A teenage boy and his mother seek solace after tragedy in fictional Medgar, Kentucky, the coal town where her father serves as veterinarian and generations of people had lived off the land. They find hope, trouble, wisdom and questions in near equal measure as a story about morals and relationships unfolds. We talk with local writer Christopher Scotton about his debut novel, the writing process and publishing his first work.
