Farmscape: The Changing Rural Landscape Farmscape is a grassroots documentary play based on Mary Swander’s students’ own extensive interviews with Iowa farmers, big and small, conventional and organic, young and old. Those farmer voices are embodied on stage from the opening farm auction scene, and the play is built on their own words and dramatizes their own experiences.
