State of Art: RKP Productions and Anchorage Community Theater team up for “Bush Poet”

Mark Robokoff and Mason Dolphin star in “Bush Poet.”

This week on State of Art, we’re hearing about “Bush Poet,” a play written and directed by Dick Reichman. The play features Mark Robokoff as a gruff and solitary Alaskan who meets a young boy, played by Mason Dolphin, whose parents work at a nearby lodge. 

This virtual one act play premiered on Jan. 21, but can be viewed any time for free. We’re joined by RKP Production’s Audrey Weltman Kelly and writer/director Dick Reichman.
