Emerging Playwrights Group
In the 2019/20 season, we invited four new writers to the EMERGING PLAYWRIGHTS group. This program supports early career playwrights in the development of a new play and culminates in a public reading. This year’s cohort included Eleanor Burgess, Jessica Huang, Kareem M. Lucas, and Emily Zemba. Guided by Literary Manager Taylor Barfield and Playwright-in-Residence Madeleine George, the group met throughout the season to get to know Two River Theater and Red Bank, share their work, receive feedback on projects in development, and discuss topics pertinent to being writers in the field. In April, the group held their final meeting via Zoom. Two River postponed this cohort’s Emerging Playwrights Group readings until the 2020/21 season.
