Book Club: BIPOC Playwrights Take On…

with Zeina Salame

In this book club style series, we read plays by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) writers and discuss some of the great many topics and themes these pieces take on. The theme for this session is “Plays on Plays.” Each of the works on our spring 2021 reading list interrogates representation in arts and entertainment industries through the creative approach of being a play about the making of a piece of theatre (or film/tv). We will cover one play per week that participants should have read in advance of our conversation. NOTE: This workshop asks participants to support artists through the purchase of play texts. A list of planned readings and helpful links to guide you will be provided in advance. 

May 9 to May 30, Sundays (4 Classes)

Suggested Accompanying Class: Who is Drag, and What am I?, Developing Solo Work, Acting I, II, The Art of Acting or Acting in the Zoomiverse, Finding Meaning Today: Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream or Public Speaking for Everyone.
