Feb 11: Panel Discussion: Understanding New Play Development
Understanding New Play Development Panel Discussion
Join Chicago Dramatists for a Saturday afternoon discussion on the inner workings of new play development.
Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 2:00pm
at Chicago Dramatists | 1105 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60642
Moderated by Chicago Dramatists Artistic Director Meghan Beals
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 will include three Resident Playwrights of Dramatists. Following the panel discussion, audience questions and participation will be encouraged.
This panel discussion is part of Chicago Theatre Week, presented by the League of Chicago Theatres in partnership with Choose Chicago.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
