Hosted by Iyvon Edebiri and Eric Borlaug, the series aims to build community by exploring diverse perspectives and by bringing awareness to inspiring voices. We strive to program plays that are new and unexpected, that challenge our listeners with innovative form and powerful content.

WELCOME HOME by Andrea Lynn Green, featuring musical guest Kristin Stokes
On Thanksgiving week, three generations of O’Connor women converge at the family’s dilapidated upstate New York farmhouse. With a new guest to entertain, the three O 'Connor women are on their best behavior. However, when an estranged and deeply troubled relation makes an unexpected return home, ghosts of the past come forth in an inevitable reckoning of sins of love, sins of hate, and sins of war.
