Playwright Charles Varon wrote The People's Violin as a solo piece about 20 years ago, performing all of the roles himself. But it has since been performed with multiple cast members. Six Points Theater has chosen to cast five people to play the multiple roles, adding an element of interactive filmed scenes, with two of the cast only appearing on film. This is a great example of "content dictates form," since the narrator is a documentary filmmaker reviewing archival footage as well as recorded interviews. It's also a smart choice for this pandemic era, expanding the cast virtually.
