From the Studio: Stage Left Theater presents "Hecuba"

Spokane Public Radio

Actor Michael Schmidt braved the cold weather today to give us an inside look at Spokane Stage Left Theater’s latest production: “Hecuba.” This modern rewrite of the ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides endeavors to show a more realistic depiction of the events following the fall of Troy, with the main focus on the fate of its queen.

Performances will be at 7:30 PM on February 22 & 23 and 2 PM on February 24, with more shows each weekend through March 10.

This play may not be suitable for all audiences.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
