The Classics Theatre Project’s debut, Dallas playwright Ben Schroth’s new adaptation of Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard, begins performances June 21 at the Trinity River Arts Center (opening night is Jan. 23, running through July 14). The production is directed by TCTP artistic director Joey Folsom with an ensemble cast led by Emily Scott Banks and Taylor Harris. The company is professional, using some Actor’s Equity contracts, and plans to produce two other (TBA) works in its first season.

Playwright Ben Schroth and director Joey Folsom took time out of their busy rehearsal schedule to answer a few questions for me. You can read the full interview at TheaterJones.
