RSVP for our October Feature in The Mary Rodgers Room @ The Dramatists Guild! LORI MINOR is October’s Feature Playwright with “The Coping Mechanism” – Catherine and Paul Harrison decided to support their daughter’s way of coping after a tragic accident, by keeping the spirit of her brother “alive” in their home through her imagination. However, over time, they’ve begun to realize that the choice isn’t helping them to move forward and may be hurting, more than healing their wounds.
Last February (2017), we featured Jordan E. Cooper’s “Ain’t No Mo’ “. This year we are pleased to share that “Ain’t No Mo’ ” is part of the Studio Series at The Public Theater.
This Throwback Thursday, we’d like to highlight Nathan Yungerberg and Jocelyn Bioh, current 2017 Cherry Lane Mentor Project Playwrights with a little time-travel to September 2012.
