All Sides Weekend: Political Theatre
Much of the subject matter in plays and other art reflects a more liberal point of view. One local theatre company hopes to challenge the status quo and put on productions with a more conservative bent. The Conservative Theatre Festival is hosting its second year at the Shedd Theater in Columbus from January 26th to the 28th.
Join us today with guest host Clare Roth as we discuss conservative theater and how politics is portrayed in performance and art.
- Robert Cooperman, founder of Stage Right Theatrics
- Richie Bauer, playwright of The Progress Play, featured in the festival
- Shilarna Stokes, assistant professor of theater at The Ohio State University
- Cindy Kam, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University
