In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, please listen to Waking Up, an insightful short by Cori Thomas. It juxtaposes the experiences of an American urbanite’s and an African villager’s struggle with breast cancer. Although the details from diagnosis to ultimate triumph are vastly different, their stories underscore the universality of the human spirit. It features Lynnette Freeman and Amy Staats. Conversation between host, Claudia Catania, and playwright, Cori Thomas, follows the play.
Husband-wife team Anne Meara (1929-2015) and Jerry Stiller play former Yiddish theater stars who steal the show at a memorial service in the The Burial Society, a comic play by Susan Sandler. Also featuring George Morfogen and David Margulies
