"This cast in particular, most of them have done several plays and musicals, so I can throw anything at them -- they're really hungry for character development, so I've had a ball doing that. These characters are very complex."

Theater is my true passion," says playwright Charlotte McCombs, whose play, "Independence," is premiering this weekend at Arts Live in Fayetteville. "I love it more than anything else, and I also love writing. So I wanted to combine my two loves into playwriting, which is my main focus right now."
