The director of the University Players production of Lion in the Streets has known its author for years and welcomes the opportunity to stage her work.
Jim Warren says mounting this drama has been a wonderful experience.
“The play is a moving poetic journey,” he says. “The dedication and heart that this cast and crew have given to this production is truly inspiring.”
