Playwright brings queer perspective to country music

Mainstreet talks with playwright Lee-Anne Poole about the show she's performing at the Queer Acts Theatre Festival.

Lee-Ann Poole's previous plays explored topics including the breakup of a triad, incest, and the life of a phone sex operator. Now, she's adding country music to the mix.
