(Okoboji)-A special talk back is on tap following the opening night performance at the Okoboji Summer Theatre. KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:

Okoboji Summer Theatre to present Cat on a Hot Tin Roof July 9-14 

The Okoboji Summer Theatre will open their production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Tuesday evening.

Dr. Gail Humphries Mardirosian, will return to direct the classic drama.  "I'm so happy to bring Tennessee Williams and this amazing, classic drama, to Okoboji.  My favorite quote about Tennessee Williams is that, he will live as long as drama itself.  Quintessential American Playwright.  Harsh, challenging, provocative, but poetic."

She adds that a special talk back with historian Dr. Joe Martin will follow Tuesday's performance.  "He's a playwright and a scholar.  He's published, I don't know, dozens of books.  He's been a Fulbrighter all over the world, and he has special insight about Williams, and I think for our audience to interact with someone who worked with Williams is pretty remarkable."

The talk back is free and open to the public, and will start after Tuesday's performance.
