The new 4-volume series will include collected works by Phillip Howze, Hansol Jung, Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas, and Christina Anderson.
After years of soul-searching, this summer’s LMDA conference in Philly promises to engage the whole field in a fresh, inclusive dialogue about which forms sustain us (and which don’t).
This month Brian talks to the Philly writer of ‘Babel’ and ‘The Arsonists’ about playwriting, parenting, and risk.
While this influential new-play conference developed plenty of new work, it also developed racist and sexist practices, say many artists and staff, necessitating a change of leadership.
The project, called New Pages, will support the development of new works by Philadelphia playwrights.
The honor includes $10,000, publication of the winning play, ‘Bottle Fly,’ and a staged reading at the National Theatre in London.
Philadelphia playwrights receive cash prizes and development support.
