Interview: Richard Fouts & Suze Allen, “The Birthday Lottery” at Z Space

Richard Fouts is the playwright and Suze Allen the director of “The Birthday Lottery,” at Z Space in San Francisco, March 29th through April 1st. The play concerns the first Vietnam draft lottery of students in 1969, and is set in a fraternity house as the numbers are being called. Those with low numbers will no longer have student deferments; those with high numbers will be free of the draft. The Nixon era lottery, created to even the playing field, took the anti-war movement to new heights. Hosted by Richard Wolinsky,
