Lloyd Richards talks about his life at Wayne State Univerity in Detroit where he became interested in radio work, and later, acting and directing in New York, his first big break as the director of A raisin in the sun, the Yale University School of Drama's training approach stressing all aspects of theater, meeting August Wilson and directing his play Ma Rainey's black bottom.
Maria Irene Fornes discusses how, with no training in constructing a play, she fell into playwrighting, her work co-founding of the New York Theatre Strategy which brought attention to playwrights by producing their plays Off and Off Off Broadway, the pain and brutality in her own plays reflecting the state of the world, her women characters, and her belief that playwrights should direct their own work.
