Best proof an old story deserves telling properly: SHEILA COWLEY

Best proof an old story deserves telling properly

When I went to see the southeastern premiere for Sheila Cowley’s Flying at Tampa Rep, I wasn’t sure I wanted to see it. See, I walked into the theater thinking I would most likely see a pleasant play that would talk about women being oppressed and blah blah blah. That’s not what I got, and I’m grateful — our local arts scene needs the nuances of plays (and other forms of art) like this. Keep writing, Sheila, and I’ll keep going to see whoever produces your work. sdcowley.com. —Cathy Salustri
