How do you create a play from a brand new script? Set in the height of the McCarthy era, Sea of Fools, penned by Michigan's own Matt Letscher, glimpses a company of actors who live in an elaborately-constructed fantasy world. The talented cast includes Guy Sanville. Hear Sanville and members of the cast discuss the transformation from the playwright's page to the performance stage! This event is scheduled to be broadcast live on Community Television Network, channel 18.
