FRIDAY NOVEMBER 30TH 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. EST / 15:00-16:30 GMT : Australian-American Artist Smackdown
Australian and American playwrights often wrestle with issues of gender, sexuality, race, and immigration, but they're doing so in very different ways, both aesthetically and thematically. New Dramatists Artistic Director Todd London and Georgetown University Professor and Playwright Christine Evans lead an intercontinental playwrights' conversation with Vanessa Bates, Declan Greene, Carson Kreitzer, Jacqueline E. Lawton, and Carlos Murillo about similarities and differences between their approaches and the cultures in which they write.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 1ST 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EST / 15:30 - 17:00 GMT: Coffee and Connectivity: New Plays and Social Media
Between the connectivity efforts at Woolly Mammoth and the Radical Hospitality program at Mixed Blood in Minneapolis, NNPN theatres are at the forefront of testing new ways of connecting with patrons around new plays. Woolly Mammoth director of artistic development Miriam Weisfeld leads a conversation with NNPN Producers-in-Residence Jamil Jude and Ronee Penoi, and Woolly connectivity director Jocelyn Prince about the latest trends, successes, and challenges that lie ahead.
