We did it! We started Season 2! Holy Crap! Anne Morgan with the American Shakespeare Center talks Shakespeare's New Contemporaries, dramaturgy for new plays at a classical theatre, and what the deal is, if any, with Staunton's vomiting vultures.

Lindsay Barr is the production dramaturg for Everyman Theatre's production of Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama "Sweat." She's also our administrator and sole staff member at the Literary Managers & Dramaturgs of the Americas. She also has like 4000 more degrees than I remembered. She's also super insightful. We bumped this episode WAY up the queue. With "Sweat" opening this week and midterm elections just two weeks away, this content feels pressing AF. Hop aboard The Context train!
