Recently, Dina Janis, Artistic Director of the Dorset Theatre Festival was on Theatre Talk discussing the upcoming season. Accompanying her were three members of the cast of Sherlock Holmes and The Jersey Lily. This is Dina’s fifth year as Artistic Director of the Festival. The season is a varied one with comedies and dramas by outstanding playwrights. .
Dina and two of the cast members, Kirk Jackson and Jenny Rohn are also members of the Bennington College faculty and the third, Chris Edwards, is a visiting faculty member at times so we asked what is the impact of their teaching on their work in professional theatre.
As Sherlockians we also asked about Sherlock Holmes and the Jersey Lily which will be the second play of the season. We also talked about Intimate Apparel, the first play of the season. We will be doing interviews with actors and others connected with these plays during the season. Some of them will be broadcast first on our radio program and others may come straight to our blogs. We are looking forward to this season as we think you will be when you hear Diana talk about it, as well as hear Kirk, Jenny and Chris talk about the Sherlock Holmes play. Kirk will also be directing at the end of the season as well.
