About This Show
In early 1942, Navy Ensign Jack Kennedy and his current fling, Danish blond bombshell and suspected Nazi spy, Inga Arvad, planned a clandestine tryst at the Fort Sumter House Hotel in Charleston, S.C. So goes the plot for playwright Julian Wiles’ screwball comedy, Inga Binga, recently performed by Charleston Stage.
Wiles, Founder and Producing Artistic Director of Charleston Stage, has written or adapted 27 original plays and musicals for the company, including Edgar Allen Poe, the Final Mystery; Denmark Vesey: Insurrection; and Gershwin at Folly. He joins Dr. Edgar to talk about writing and directing Inga Binga, and some of his other works that also have South Carolina roots.
