Thank You 10



'Thank You 10' is a three-part podcast that features intimate interviews with creative individuals - on and off the stage, on and off the page. Hosted at UNC Center for Dramatic Art by UNC MFA-candidate Gregory DeCandia, the name 'Thank You 10' pays homage to the standard practice of saying thank you to the calls a Stage Manager gives an actor prior to places. The podcast concludes each mini-sode with a six-word story, an exercise attributed to Ernest Hemingway winning a bet. Challenged to write a story in less than ten words, Hemingway constructed: For sale, baby shoes, never worn in six. Each ten-minute segment sheds some light on the ever-shifting creative landscape and proffers insight on how to navigate its shadowy sinews. It all starts in...

Now, more than ever, the political climate of our country is on everyone’s minds and many are turning to artistic outlets to express their thoughts and opinions. Lily Kennedy’s new verbatim text play, 2016: Her Story, Her Vote, gives voice to the often unheard, by taking a bi-partisan look at women’s reactions to the recent election and its results. In this episode, Thank You 10 meets with budding new playwright Lily Kennedy; Amanda Miller, head of OCUEdge, TheatreOCU’s staged-reading program, and MaryAnn Grover, a law-student with experience working on the Clinton campaign to discuss women’s voice in the arts and in politics.
