Saturday, February 11 2:00 PM
at Chicago Dramatists, 1105 W. Chicago Ave.
Moderated by Chicago Dramatists Artistic Director Meghan Beals
Join Chicago Dramatists for a Saturday afternoon discussion on the inner workings of new play development. Where does a play begin? How do playwrights go from idea, to script, to production? What does a playwright need from directors and actors? What is an actor’s role in the room? A Director’s? And, if you are interested in new work, as a creative or an audience member, how can you get involved? Panelists include three Resident Playwrights of Chicago Dramatists. Following the panel discussion, audience questions and participation will be encouraged.
