Alabama Arts Radio Podcast, Playwright Cheryl Davis

Literature Program Manager Anne Kimzey interviews Cheryl Davis, an award winning writer and playwright. Her work has been read and performed nationally and internationally. She is in Alabama for the premier of her play at the Birmingham Children's Theatre (BCT), "Tuxedo Junction," a story of Erskine Hawkins. It’s Davis’ second time premiering a work in Birmingham, the first being last season’s Red Mountain Theatre Company production of “Barnstormer,” Davis’ musical look at black aviatrix Bessie Coleman. In the interview Davis tells of her education and background that led her to become a playwright of historic American characters as well as a talented lyricist.
