We talk to Actor Amaka Umeh and Dr. Kathleen Gallagher the Professor Behind the Must-See New Play “Toward’s Youth: A Play On Radical Hope”

The new documentary play from award-winning theatremaker Andrew Kushnir, Toward’s Youth: A Play On Radical Hope, is on stage in the Guloien Theatre now until March 16.

Originally commissioned through a ground-breaking research project lead by internationally recognized professor and researcher Dr. Kathleen Gallagher of the University of Toronto, Towards Youth is the result of two years of worldwide travel that playwright Kushnir undertook with Dr. Gallagher, visiting high school drama classes in cities in England, Greece, India, Taiwan, and Toronto.

Dr. Kathleen Gallagher and ensemble performer Amaka Umeh stopped by to chat with Eva D on The Afternoon Express.
