50 Years Later: the Developmental Path to Production
The O’Neill Center in Waterford, CT. was created at the dawn of the regional theater movement to support the development of new theater. Through trial and error, the Center invented the signature “O’Neill process”: a four week retreat for top theater professionals, culminating in public readings of early draft plays. Join us for a discussion about The O’Neill’s development process with artists and O’Neill leadership past and present.
A discussion with playwrights John Guare, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Samuel D. Hunter;
Wendy C. Goldberg, from the National Playwrights Conference;
Lynne Meadow from the Manhattan Theatre Club,
and the O’Neill Center’s founder, George C White.
Moderated by Patrick Healy.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Launchpad of the American Theater: The O’Neill Center Since 1964.
