Synopsis
An adaptation of Arthur Miller's short play about Fredericka Rose, an urban newspaper reporter ordered to do a "puff piece" interview with centenarian Bob Ryan. Fredericka goes through the motions with the old man, turning on the phony charm and professional manipulation, trying not to show her irritation. But Ryan gradually gets under her skin, and she finds herself responding to his humanity and the sparks of life in his endless stories. The interview turns out to be an encounter that changes the way she thinks about her life. The program includes a documentary segment featuring an interview with Arthur Miller. The segment also highlights the Actors Theater of Louisville, which commissioned the piece, and the creative ferment in regional theater.
