Merry Renn Vaughan talks with KUMD host Chris Harwood about historical plays – not those that have made history, but rather those that represent historical events.  Whether the narrative is reworded creatively, like the popular musical Hamilton, or tied more explicitly to the actual words of the historical figures, like the 1959 play The Diary of Anne Frank, these histories remain relevant to modern times.

Merry Renn Vaughan is the director of the theatre program at the College of St. Scholastica and she joins us to talk about theater on the radio.  "Radio Theater," Fridays at 8:00 on Northland Morning, supported in part by a grant from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
