Abstract:

"This anthology represents the voices of women who range from two-time Obie Award-winning authors to emerging writers just beginning their careers. It's a group of women who vary in age, race and sexual orientation, representing a selection of society that is inclusive. One of the Festival's core values is "to tell diverse stories". This play anthology represents the success of that value by identifying some of the most current work in the theater today - all of which have had subsequent productions since their premiere at the Contemporary American Theater Festival. The plays include: Gidion's Knot by Johnna Adams The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess Memoirs of a Forgotten Man by D.W Gregory Dead and Breathing by Chisa Hutchinson 20th Century Blues by Susan Miller"--
