The Innovation Issue
No. 4
Vol. 24
Mar/Apr 2022

This issue of The Dramatist was born from Terence Anthony's “The Listening Party.” Within these digital pages, you'll find a roundtable of dramatists discussing their innovative works and an introduction to the groundbreaking work of the Midnight Oil Collective. Also in this issue, Lynn Nottage and Matt Barbot share their thoughts on The Watering Hole, and Roger Q. Mason, Nick Hadikwa Mwaluki, ayla xuan chi sullivan, and Peppermint dream the queer future. 

Marsha Norman shares her takeaways from teaching high schoolers in “What I'm Teaching Now,” Jason Robert Brown answers “Ten Questions,” and Nikkole Salter explains “Why I Joined the Guild.”

The Dramatist is made possible by funding from the Council of the Dramatists Guild of America, a generous gift from the John Logan Foundation through a grant from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, and contributions from Guild members like you.
