Julie Marie Myatt, South Coast Repertory’s Mellon Playwright in Residence, will moderate a conversation with a number of the 2015 festival playwrights, including Richard Alger, Bekah Brunstetter, Aditi Brennan Kapil, Itamar Moses, Qui Nguyen, and Melissa Ross. 

Join us for a conversation about the playwright and the audience. Do playwrights think of audiences as they write? Are these playwrights wrestling with a burning personal question—or is there a more global question at hand? Who or what were they thinking of when they wrote these plays?

Panelist include this year’s festival playwrights:
