So excited to be working on a play that I’ve finished, but never heard aloud before. It’s a play that’s gotten me some personalized rejection letters, but I’m so glad to take some time to deepen my exploration of the post-apocalyptic world in my play Drapetomania.
What is New Leaf?
New Leaf is a local new play development program that focuses on uplifting the work of Minnesota-based emerging playwrights. This Fall, New Leaf will launch in collaboration with the Playwright Cabal and Arts Nest to present staged readings of five new plays between September and December 2019. Each event concludes with a facilitated feedback session between the audience and artistic team. By the end of the collaboration with us, we aim to elevate the playwright to the next level of their development process. All events are free and open to the public.
