KBBI and Pier One Theatre present the Fred Cook Interview an original play written by Nancy Lord.

Dr. Frederick Cook, the famous--or infamous--early twentieth-century Arctic explorer, returns for a present-day interview about how unfairly his contemporaries treated him. The Fred Cook Interview is a one-act play by Homer writer Nancy Lord that ponders the problem of telling truth from non-truth, in Cook's age and ours.
