The Radical Hospitality Issue
No. 5
Vol. 23
May/Jun 2021

This edition of The Dramatist explores the concept of Radical Hospitality. Dramatists share what radical hospitality means to them, Christine Toy Johnson moderates a roundtable that examines what is required to create a welcoming environment for communities who have not always felt included in the theatre, and Jay Alan Zimmerman provides advice on Three Things people can do to make their theatrical spaces more accessible. Additionally, Lucy Wang answers Ten Questions on her life as a writer, and Arthur Kopit's essay on "Why I Joined the Guild" is reprinted in memory of the longtime DG Council Member who passed away in April 2021.

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.
