Tonight is the premiere of an original play entitled "An Evening with Ayn Rand", written and directed by University of Wyoming Theatre and Arts professor, Bill Downs. Ayn Rand was a philosopher and accomplished novelist and was a major proponent of  laissez-faire  Capitalism.The play delves into the life of Ayn Rand, her ideals, life choices and challenges them through a unique approach involving the audience.  In my interview professor Downs speaks on: what motivated him to write and direct the play, casting and what to expect each night from the innovative play.
