NPR/WYPR: Charming Billy


Recommended Posts

Hey, just filed my first story with WYPR in Baltimore.

Death, Alcholism, and a world premier. Charming Billy at Round House Theatre in Bethesda, MD brings to life Alice McDermott’s 1998 National Book Award Winner and best seller. Set at Billy Lynch’s wake the play brings together family, friends, and even the author.

It's a piece that looks at the play and the process of adaptation. The cool thing, especially for a regional theater like Round House, is that McDermott teaches at Hopkins and so was able to be on hand and helped in the writing of the scipt and worked with the director and playwright for two years putting this show together.

Pretty cool for a small theater to have someone of that caliber actively joining forces with them both on the page and the stage.
