James Still

Drama

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20090710

Like the playwright, William Inge, who came from Independence, James Still comes from another small town in Kansas--Pomona. In this interview, Still talks about his beginnings and how that led to writing over 15 plays, including The Heavens are Hung in Black, commissioned by Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. to premiere on the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth. Currently the playwright-in-residence at the Indiana Repertory theatre, Still reads from Iron Kisses and his other 2009 play, The Velvet Rut, which premiered at The Unicorn Theatre in Kansas City.
