The Middlebury playwright’s latest play is a musical called “Swing State.” It follows the exploits of a gay, atheist chiropractor who returns to his native Ohio and meets a born-again kindergarten teacher. The play was staged at the New York Musical Theater Festival this summer.
We talk with Yeaton about how “Swing State” was received, his past works, current projects and what excites him about being a playwright and teacher.
