One thought on “New Podcast! GETTING IN by Frank Gilroy

  1. Listened to this last night (3/13/16). I thoroughly enjoyed the play AND the interview with its author Frank Gilroy who noted that the play was an autobiographical sketch of how he made it into Dartmouth.

    Don’t be fooled by his “Dartmouth” degree … He was an “everyman” who wanted to take advantage of his GI Bill opportunity to go to college and originally picked Dartmouth because he’d seen a movie that “took place” there and doggedly pursued his dream despite VERY long odds … and, he had quite a bit of “gambling” experience so he knew what long odds really mean.

    Humble account of his quest and very thoughtful interview follows.
