This is GRP’s eighth year conducting Play/Write. The program consists of yearlong playwriting residencies. During these residencies, each student writes an original play, 10 of which are chosen for the Showcase. This event creates a direct relationship between writing dramatic scripts in the classroom and the real world application of that writing: a theatre production. In addition to the evening performance that is open to the public, the students will come to Dillard University’s Cook Theatre on the same day for a 10 am matinee performance. Every student will receive a formatted and professionally printed copy of his/her play.
