During this past summer’s Indianapolis Fringe Festival, Bloomington’s Diane Kondrat reigned supreme. Her two-woman show, created with Eric Pfeffinger, was the runaway theatrical hit. Diane talks with host Deb Kent about the process of creating a prize winning script, performing physically demanding social satire, and how plans for future performances at fringe festivals throughout the US and in Europe are going.
