This month we travel back to the 1940s with Caitlin Cieri’s historical drama Shoujodan: Song of the Scouts. We discuss the ins and outs of writing shows with large character breakdowns and small casts and take a look at why Historical Fiction is crucial for understanding the past.

The scene featured in this week’s episode features Katrina Hall as Umeko and Lauren M. Shover as Phyllis. Stage directions provided by Robert Gene Pellechio.
