In Conversation with Black Playwrights 

Black playwrights discuss how the summer of 2020 affected their creative work and how they have navigated the challenges of returning to theatre. These writers speak about their unique position in the field cultivating spaces for Black voices and the forms their activism has taken. They also share what it takes to sustain themselves and their communities, and their hopes to shift and expand the paradigm of what it means to be successful.
