Four PAD alumni were commissioned to write plays for our season. Each playwright was limited to writing one 15-25-minute piece with a cast of at least 2 but no more than 4 actors. Writers were free to write what they wanted, but each was deeply aware of the extraordinary social and pandemic moment we share. All have been provided a short list of scenic elements they could employ – things like a pillar, a road blockade, some stairs. Writers could use all, some, or none of the items. These limitations kept the production demands lean and agile. The playwrights are: Nastaran Amahdi ('00), Marisa Wegrzyn ('03), Chauncy Thomas ('06) and Liza Birkenmeier ('08); all have developed thriving careers in theatre and television, and we look forward to hearing their voices again on campus.
