Miriam Weisfeld and Robert O'Hara express the mutual benefits of their collaboration through the Playwright Residency.
"He's one of our company members and he's very close to the center of our artistic thinking. It was the most organic thing in the world to buy him a lot more time to spend at Woolly developing as a complete artist."
"They allow me to be a writer and director and as crazy and ridiculous as I want to be. They encourage the ambition that I have as an artist."
