Hale Garrison's play Humanity Stew premiers this month, February 2015 at Peoria's Cornstock Theatre. No, it's not about cannibalism. It's a collection of seven short comedies knitted by an over all narrative involving a grandfather and granddaughter.  We talked about the play and the writing of it as well as about Hale's experience directing for the first time last year--Woody Allen's Honeymoon Motel.
