The Hop's Class Divide project, with award-winning playwright Anne Galjour
Recorded October 13, 2008
For the past three years, nationally known playwright and artist Anne Galjour has immersed herself in Dartmouth College's physically close, yet emotionally divided rural New England backyard, examining the marked class divide that mirrors a national class divide. In this podcast, Galjour discusses her one-woman play, "You Can't Get There From Here," and the characters that emerged from the personal testimony of people within Upper Valley communities who met with Galjour in story circles to voice their own experiences with socio-economic class. Galjour's play is a key component of the Hop's Class Divide project, a three-year iniative enlisting the arts to examine class.
