Cape Cod is a popular place to retire. But for 75-year-old actress and playwright Lynda Sturner, moving to Truro was a chance to start anew. In 2010, she packed up her apartment in Manhattan and moved full-time to her summer home in Truro. She's recently written - with playwright Jim Dalglish - one of the most personal plays of her career. It’s called “A Talented Woman.” 

This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole.  Justine is a graduate of the workshop and you can find out more about that program at Transom.org
