Nov 17, 2017 | 5 min

In just five years Conrad Thompson has written more than twenty stage plays in the Charles City Public Library. Using the pen name "Dugan", he combines local and historical folklore to reflect on the unexpected challenges and enduring values in Iowa’s changing small towns. Moving from the page to the stage, Dugan now finds himself alone in the spotlight where he reveals the true benefit of committing to a craft. Lend Dugan an ear as he turns obstacles into art in Episode 10, The Sage of Charles City.
