Christopher Shinn Taps Local Roots for Play at Hartford Stage

Sep 8, 2015

Born in Hartford and raised in Wethersfield, playwright Christopher Shinn pays homage to Connecticut in a new play called "An Opening In Time."

This hour, Shinn joins us to talk about the play, which will premiere at the Hartford Stage later this month, showing September 17 through October 11. We ask Shinn to reflect on his childhood here in the Nutmeg State.

We also discuss his battle with Ewing's sarcoma, and find out how the experience affected him both personally and artistically.
