Episode 52: Carol Piersol

Carol is the former Artistic Director of the Firehouse Theatre and has started a new company called the Fifth Wall Theatre with actor Billy-Christopher Maupin. Over the last few month I have seen two of her newest productions and found myself wondering why the hell I haven’t paid more attention to theatre in general. It’s immediate and visceral and a little intimidating sometimes but always illuminating. Carol through her years of involvement in Richmond theatre has brought challenging and fresh productions to a city that has been fondly referred to as 30 years behind everywhere else and from her I get some insight into what theatre can be and how much better I could be at listening to it and everyone else.
