'3 No Trump' Play Used Bridge Club To Showcase Friendship, Stories

Some of the greatest stories we tell each other — the funniest, the most touching — seem to take on increased importance when we’re sitting around with family or our closest friends. And when that sort of reunion takes place on a regular basis, those stories can span the generations.

In her new play "3 No Trump," longtime Valley actress Cathy Dresbach used her mom’s bridge club — and the group’s related journals — as the jumping-off point behind how friends get and stay close.

We talked with Dresbach about the play and the personal memories that helped her write it.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
