TKO: The Art And Work Ethic Of Octavio Solis

Octavio Solis on a 2017 visit.

To call Octavio Solis a prolific playwright is a big understatement.  He's written enough plays to fill a shelf, enough plays to give someone a cramp picking up all the scripts. 

And the work continues; next year the Oregon Shakespeare Festival will host the world premiere of "Mother Road." 

Solis has had several of his plays staged at OSF already, and has participated in the "Play On" project, rewriting Shakespeare's works into modern English.  Robert Goodwin, our Keenest Observers host, returns to talk theater with Octavio Solis.
