Lunch with an Alum 2015-2016

 After graduating in 2004, Hunter attended Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where he studied history, languages, and the arts, finally setting on a major in the performing arts. He was one of five students in the first graduating class of Theatre majors at Georgetown, and he remained in the city for six years working in professional theatre. His full-length plays include Freud Meets Girl (about a machine that reads dreams), Tell-Tale (a story about a blood transfusion that riffs on Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”), and Unplugged, which follows the late Nirvana musician Kurt Cobain through his first year in Heaven.

While in DC, Hunter also ran the nonprofit arts workshop Artists’ Bloc, where he helped to develop young artists’ musical and dance pieces, worked on the management level at several downtown playhouses, directed numerous shows, and wrote more than 200 articles for DC Theatre Scene and American Theatre magazine.  Now back in Western Mass, Hunter has been taking a break from theatre. He currently works as a staff writer for the Valley Advocate newspaper, where he reports on arts and culture, music, food, politics, and a wide range of local current events.
