Episode 121: Danai Gurira

danai  TV fans know her as an actor – Mochinne on The Walking Dead. Theater goers know her as a playwright: her Eclipsed, starring Lupita Nyong’o, is on Broadway. Moose hunters know her as… no! They don’t know her at all. She hunts no moose. But she spoke with wit and insight when we met at Playwrights Horizons, the venue for her newest play, Familiar, along with musicians Lily Henley and Duncan Wickel – oh yes, two fiddlers.
