Bennington is fortunate to have its own Equity theatre company downtown on Main Street. This is Oldcastle’s 48th season which is an impressive record. Even more impressive, it has had the same Artistic Director all those years. Eric Peterson not only has the distinction of being Oldcastle’s Artistic Director for that period of time, he is also, as far as we know, the longest serving Artistic Director with one company in the history of American theatre. Bob and I had the pleasure of talking with Eric about the upcoming season. He not only told us about the plays that will be produced, but about the process of choosing a season. In addition, he shared his thoughts about the changes that have taken place in American theatre. This is a discussion worth listening to, not only for information about the plays, but also for insights into the nature of theatre..
