William Inge’s Posthumous Comeback | | Observer

"The William Inge Center for the Arts is a bizarre—perhaps unique—blending of theatre professionals and small town America," asserts Peter Ellenstein, artistic director of the center, based in playwright William Inge's hometown, Independence, Kans. "Independence is a rural community with a population under 10,000. The largest city is 95 miles away and that's Tulsa. Yet each year approximately 3,000 visitors from all over the country, including dozens of scholars and important theatre professionals, gather for the festival. What makes it even more remarkable is the community involvement. We have 100 to 120 local volunteers, decorating, driving people around, conducting tours."
