Headwind, a play in 2 acts by Diane Taber, will be aired on Saturday Night Theatre radio drama on

It is a production of The Free Theatre Company and Robert Chantler.

Brief synopsis of the play: 

Thirty-two-year-old Vivianne Cording’s independence as a landowner is already considered inappropriate in eighteenth-century Maine, but she risks more than censure by making and selling candles to protest the indiscriminant killing of whales for oil.  She has a relationship, outside of marriage, with Captain Zenas Rule who has made enemies of his own among the fleet owners. Together they become a headwind against a town that won’t change its course and threatens to crash right through them.

Diane is a founding member of ICWP and past Director of Communications.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
