It's time to celebrate new play development in Chicago! Chicago is one of the country's leading cities for new theatrical works. To that end, please join the Dramatists Guild of America and Steppenwolf Theatre at an Industry Night Out for theatre writers! This event is open to anyone living and working in Chicago who is involved in new play development.

Come meet visiting Dramatists Guild staff members Emmanuel Wilson (Executive Director of Creative Affairs), Jordan Stovall (Director of Outreach and Institutional Partnerships), participate in resource sharing within your community, and get to know your fellow industry cohort.

All guests at this FREE event will receive one complimentary drink token. Light food will be served, sponsored by The Dramatists Guild.

After our gathering, those in attendance are encouraged to optionally purchase tickets to Last Night and the Night Before, by Donnetta Lavinia Grays playing in the main theatre space from 8pm CDT. DG members can receive $10 off by using code LastNight10.
