About the Event


Hosted by Aleshea Harris and Dominique Morisseau, the Black Playwrights Gathering is a space uniquely created for and by Black playwrights. We plan to gather in a way that defies status and allows us all to be together authentically.

The gathering will be a day of introductions, leisure, laughter, and layin' back. You know we'll be eatin' and some of us will be playing games; there will be rich conversations and time for dreaming and making new friends.

For inquiries regarding this offering, please contact us at
