WCQ515 Playwright Samuel D Hunter

Host: Amy Matheny

Amy is thrilled the sun has finally come out! She dishes on the Facebook HRC red and pink equal signs that popped up all over during the Supreme Court hearings last week, the fight for Illinois Marriage Equality continues and the changing dynamic of support for same sex marriage. Amy feels that as a nation, we are embracing the choice to be courageous. Is she right? Send your comments!

Sam has written the new play at Victory Gardens Theater called "The Whale" and discusses casting the 600 pound gay man and main character, Charlie. Sam also shares what brought him to write as a career. "The Whale" runs April 5th thru May 5th. For more information visit
