PlayMakers and the Chapel Hill Public Library are seeking mid-sized original works inspired by Richard Wright’s seminal novel “Native Son.” Submit your entry by Friday, August 9!
Here’s what our Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch is up to while directing in D.C.
Virginia Grise’s one-woman piece “Your Healing is Killing Me” may be hitting the PlayMakers stage next week, but don’t call it a play. It’s a performance manifesto.
Whom to tell and how to tell it. What Li’l Bit’s story of reclamation in “How I Learned to Drive” can tell us about being survivors.
Decades after it won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Paula Vogel’s masterpiece, “How I Learned to Drive,” hits even harder than it ever did before.
“The group helps each individual survivor enlarge her story, releasing her from her isolation and readmitting the fullness of the larger world from which she has been alienated.”
When a playwright trusts the audience, it can result in a truly powerful night at the theatre. Paula Vogel trusts you with “How I Learned to Drive.”
The Paul Green Theatre is a special place. And director Lee Sunday Evans has found it to be down right inspiration for her vision of “How I Learned to Drive.”
Paula Vogel’s “How I Learned to Drive” is one of the most important plays of the last 50 years and takes on the patriarchy in a unique and unflinching manner.
With the help for Propsmaster Andrea Bullock, Vivienne Benesch and Jim Findlay have dreamed up a world where where the past is constantly flowing in and out of the present.
