In the latest episode of "On Contact," Hedges sits down with the actor, playwright and essayist to discuss Shawn's new book, "Night Thoughts."
Twenty years after its debut, playwright Wallace Shawn’s drama has taken on new meaning for American theatergoers. (Shawn is pictured at left.)
Wallace Shawn translated an ad by the Anti-Defamation League into "plain English" and he found a disturbing message; a Chinese chef meets his end when cooking with a dangerous ingredient; meanwhile, a binational Israel-Palestine state may not be as far off as many think. These discoveries and more after the jump.
The beloved playwright and actor Wallace “Wally” Shawn just returned from Brazil where he performed his play "The Designated Mourner" for journalist Glenn Greenwald.
