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

    640 433 Play Penn

      Join us for a free online Q+A session moderated by PlayPenn Education Director Julia Bumke.

      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. 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).

      June 29, 5-7pm E.S.T.

      I walked away with an arsenal of guidelines for what makes a high-concept play, but also with half a notebook full of fantastic off-the-cuff breakthroughs and exercises.
