A Whole New World

Hear from the artists of the IMAGINATION shows at FringeNYC about how they faced the challenges of creating work which transports the audience to a different reality, while still serving the story. Can plants really talk? Can humanity save itself from itself in a future world? And where do letters never sent actually end up? Come explore how these creative teams bring new worlds to life.
Featuring: A FUTURE IMPERFECT, Petunia, Like Poetry, PUSSY, Still Life and The Office of Dead Letters.

What it takes to write about family!

Hear from artists of the REALITY shows at FringeNYC talk about their approach to writing real characters based on members of a family (their own and others). Where do reality and fact meet fiction and poetic license? Which events stir the playwright to put pen to paper, and then what happens?
Featuring: Perfectly Normel People, What's an Anjan?, Listen... Can you hear me now?, Double Fault and For a Good time, Call Kathy Blanchard

Adventurous Writing - taking an audience on a journey!

Hear from artists of the ADVENTURE shows at FringeNYC as they discuss why their writers were captivated by ideas and places as diverse as South Africa's Soweto shanty town and the dusty rural back roads of Alabama. Why did they write these particular plays and take audiences on these particular journeys? 
ALABAMA BOUND and Ndebele Funeral.
