Wait Don’t Leave at Kennedy Center

I had a blast on Sunday introducing Wait Don’t Leave to the playwrights and theater professionals at Playwrights: Taking Control of Our Own Fates.

A huge thanks to the Dramatists Guild folks for putting it together – including Brent Englar and Noelle Viñas – and especially to Gwydion Suilebhan for all his hard work advocating for DC-area playwrights.

Thanks also to @clawritesplays for this photo of the Local Initiatives panel! Other panelists included Renee Calarco (moderator) and Caleen Sinnette Jennings of The Welders, Danielle Mohlman of Field Trip Theatre, and Pooja Chawla of Fortune Cookie Collective.

The whole ordeal felt like presenting a new baby to the congregation. I respect my fellow local playwrights so much, and it was so inspiring to learn from their ideas and experience.

Here’s to many more events like it!
