Salt Lake City, UT – Among the offerings at this year's Utah Shakespearean Festival is the modern play Foxfire. It's the story of Annie Nations - a woman firmly rooted on her Appalachian farm. But with her husband dead, her son moved away and a developer pushing to buy her land, Annie is faced with the difficult decision of staying with her memories or moving on. Wednesday, we'll talk to playwright Susan Cooper, director Kathleen Conlin and some of the cast about tradition, family and that place called home.
Utah Shakespearean Festival continues through August 29th. In addition to Foxfire, other plays this season are Shakespeare's Henry V, As You Like It and The Comedy of Errors as well as Private Lives, The Secret Garden, Tuesdays with Morrie and The Woman in Black.
