Ruts! The Oregon Trail Experience
Ruts! The Oregon Trail Experience is premiering at the Asheville Fringe Festival. I talked with writer/director Debbie Harbin and composer Paul Obarowski about their inspiration, their own experiences of the game, what we can expect from the performance, and why you should be there--even it you've never played The Oregon Trail.

It's the weekend of love. Or so some say. If you've got a special someone or if you're happily single, there's lots to get into.
