Play Explores Gammage Death


A new play exploring the 1995 arrest and death of Johnny Gammage opens tonight at the Henry Heymann Theater. It runs through February 19 before moving on to the August Wilson center Downtown March 2nd.

Essential Public Radio's Mark Nootbaar had a chance to speak with "The Gammage Project" author Attilo Favorini. He asked the University of Pittsburgh Professor what drew him to the nearly 17-year-old story.
