Gore Vidal Play

American author, essayist and commentator Gore Vidal died earlier this week and as it turns out, he'll get a tribute here in Toronto. Terre Haute is a play based on the real-life correspondence between Vidal and Oklahoma city bomber Timothy McVeigh. It will play at the SummerWorks Festival. Alistair Newton is the Artistic Director of the production and joined guest host Wei Chen. Listen audio (runs 5:38)
