A Conversation with A.R. Gurney

by:  Thom Dunn at 12/06/2013

Fresh from the world premiere of his newest play, Family Furniture, The Cocktail Hour playwright A.R. Gurney stopped by the BU Theatre this past weekend to catch a performance of his psuedo-meta-auto-biographical show. He stopped along the way to answer a few questions for the audience, with a little help from "Morning Edition" host Bob Oakes. The two spoke for an hour in front of a packed afternoon crowd about Gurney's career and writing habits, his life and connections to Boston, and of course, about The Cocktail Hour, then opened up the conversation to questions from the audience.

For those who missed it — not to worry! We recorded the entire conversation for your listening pleasure. Check it out below, or download the MP3 to save it on your hard drive.
