Playwright/Designer Collaboration Happy Hour, Week Three: Maria Feuereisen and Alejandro Moreno Jashés

6/29/2020 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM ET

At PlayPenn, we prioritize playwrights as the fundamental authority in the creation of new work. But what about the work that happens to take these projects from page to stage? In each of our three happy-hour sessions, we'll speak with a pair of playwright-designer collaborators who have worked together to tell innovative new stories onstage. They'll join us for a free online Q+A session moderated by PlayPenn Education Director Julia Bumke. Drop in for a single session, or sign up for all three! Set and costume designers were recommended by Clint Ramos (TONY Award, Best Costume Design of a Play).

When:  June 29, 5-7pm E.S.T.

Where: Online via Zoom

Preparation Required: None

Tuition: Free!

Cancellation/refund policy

PlayPenn is always working to secure amazing artists to teach our classes and our teachers often go out of their way to fit teaching with us into their busy schedules. Our class sizes are limited to support individual attention, and as such, we are not able to offer refunds if you are unable to attend. So, before you register and pay, make sure you’ve cleared space on your calendar so that you can guarantee your opportunity to work with our master artists! In very extreme circumstances, we may need to cancel a class for reasons beyond our control and will offer full refunds.

A Note From Our Education Department:

Sharing your play with the world is an incredible rush—but it’s also unarguably terrifying. After an often isolating writing process, your work is exposed for everyone to see. We know just how vulnerable writers are in these moments, and we’re passionate about helping to navigate them.
Here at PlayPenn, we offer our students supportive opportunities to test out new work and hone their craft, providing them with a sense of camaraderie at all stages of their writing careers. Our PlayPenn classes encourage writers to bounce ideas off of one another, commiserate about industry challenges, and be inspired by the world-class writers and industry experts leading each course. We apply this same ethos to The Foundry, our intensive writers group for emerging Philadelphia playwrights; and to our public readings of our students’ works in progress throughout the year.
By taking a PlayPenn class, you become part of a welcoming community of experienced playwrights, avid playgoers, recent grads, and everyone in between. Please join us!
