Bringing WVU's Production Of 'King Lear' To Life On The Small Screen, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, with theaters still closed last spring, WVPB collaborated with West Virginia University’s School of Theater & Dance to film a production of “King Lear.” We hear from Director Jerry McGonigal about the unique production process.

Also, in this show, we have news from the West Virginia Legislature, responses to the situation in Ukraine and a story about a potential slowing down of the nationwide overdose death rate.

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting which is solely responsible for its content.

Support for our news bureaus comes from West Virginia University, Concord University, and Shepherd University.
