Dateline: The Bard of Minnesota - 2002-05-31

Well, as Shakespeare said, "The play's the thing." He might have added that there wouldn't be a play if there wasn't a playwright. There have been many great playwrights whose works have had numerous performances...Shakespeare...Moliére...Ibsen...Jeff Hatcher. Jeff Hatcher? Who's Jeff Hatcher? Well, he lives in the United States and his plays have been produced in England, Germany, Greece, and Japan.

Last year alone, 75 of his works hit the stage. Marianne Combs in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Neal Lavon in Washington have more on the Bard of Minnesota in this Dateline report.
