Festival Guest Roundtable
Again this summer, due to ongoing pandemic restrictions, the 2021 Hollins Playwrights Festival readings will be presented live online via Zoom (all times Eastern). All readings are free and open to the public. But tickets will be limited.
Going back to 2009, we have been presenting original work by our students in front of a live audience comprised of other students, local audiences, and guest respondents from around the country. On Sunday, after the final staged reading, we provide an opportunity for each of the guest respondents to introduce themselves, talk a little bit about their own work, and reflect on their observations of the weekend as a whole. There may be a chance for the public to ask questions or give their own feedback on the event, but the focus will be the perspective of our guests on new play development, partnerships between academic and professional theatres, and current trends in approaches to new work rather than further feedback on individual readings from the Festival.
2021 GUEST RESPONDENTS:
Jessica Angleskhan, Megan Carney, Tessa Carr, Jonathan G Galvez, Ayesha Hawkins,
Leonela Hernandez, Anne G. Morgan, Daniel Singh, Dominic Taylor, Dwayne Yancey
