The Playwrights' Center
January 13, 2011
The Playwrights' Center is, in my opinion, one of the gems in the Minneapolis theatre community. Not only do they help budding new playwrights workshop their plays, but they also keep local actors employed, host fabulous events (such as the Ruth Easton series and Playlabs), and provide a number of classes, lectures, and seminars to help educate and enlighten. Their AMAZING staff works tirelessly to make sure that each artist that comes through their doors has a fantastic experience. As one of their interns, I saw first-hand the amazing impact that PWC has on each playwright, actor, and designer that they embrace. My life--and the lives of countless other theatre professionals--would not be the same without The Playwrights' Center.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Rar too many ways to name, but the impact of the organization is both professional and personal--for myself and many other artists.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them a bunch of money, relocate them to a larger, state of the art facility, and maybe convince them to hire me :)
Volunteer & I worked as the lab/workshop intern, assisted with administrative tasks, and house managed public readings.
