Kenyan Playwright Gets Big Stage Debut in Chicago

We've all received the emails: just pass on a little personal information and a huge pile of money will soon be wired your way. After reading the very polite subject line, do you normally just hit delete without bothering to read it? But what if instead, you hit reply, and make a connection with the sender?

Music Button: Mahala Rai Banda, "Solo Para Ti", from the CD Ghetto Blasters, (Asphalt Tango)
