Theodore Roethke subject of new play by David Wagoner

From the Seattle Times:
"One of the great experiences of youth is finding a writer who speaks directly to you, as if they know you intimately and understand you entirely.
A writer who spoke to me that way was the poet Theodore Roethke, the subject of "First Class," a new play by David Wagoner debuting soon at ACT Theatre.
"First Class" has local hooks aplenty. Wagoner is also a well-known poet, who teaches creative writing at the University of Washington. Roethke, Wagoner's teacher and mentor, taught at UW, with a few hiatuses, from 1947 until his death in 1963."
