Friday Phone Call # 18
Jackie Sibblies Drury at New Dramatists
The Van Lier Fellowship at New Dramatists has launched some exciting voices. I talked to the three current fellows about their path to this opportunity, what they are planning for it, and where they are headed. Start following these writers now! This is call two of three.
Jackie Sibblies Drury sneaks out of rehearsal for the premiere of her play at Victory Gardens to talk about the Fellowship, her multiple artistic homes, the impact of the Van Lier Fellowship on her sense of herself as a playwright, and and the fine line between respect and stalking. Some serious bright spotting in this conversation.
