CHICAGO REGION: Dramatists Guild/LMDA Event
On Monday evening, October 23 at 7 PM, the Dramatists Guild and the LMDA, the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, will host a panel discussion and mixer event at TimeLine Theatre.
The event will have two components:
1) A public panel discussion with literary managers (open to all interested playwrights and dramaturgs.)
2) A small-group breakout where DG members will share short synopses of works in progress with LMDA members.
The panel discussion will feature literary managers and dramaturgs from various Chicago theatres, and will focus on the topics of collaboration between playwrights and dramaturgs, cultivating relationships that benefit the development of new plays, and the value of readings, workshops, and development opportunities in our area. The panel discussion is open to all interested playwrights, whether DG members or not.
Following the panel discussion, members of the DG and LMDA will have the opportunity to meet in pairs or small groups, where DG members will be able to share short synopses of works in progress for discussion with LMDA members. Only members of the Dramatists Guild and LMDA members are eligible for the small-group breakout, and Dramatists Guild members must reserve a spot to participate by emailing DG Regional Rep Cheryl Coons at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP by October 20.
Dramatists Guild members who wish to participate in the small group breakout: please attach your short synopsis (250 words maximum) to your email when making your reservations.
The event is free of charge.
