Philadelphia: Sitting Down with Teresa Miller and Caitlin Cieri
As Ben Franklin said, “God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.”

MARJORIE BICKNELL: Teresa, why Jouska Playworks?
TERESA MILLER: I was finishing at the Foundry and wondering, “What’s next? We didn’t have a Black playwrights’ group, and I thought, “Start one of your own!” I ran it by Keenya Jackson and Quinn Eli, and they were on board instantly. So, I’m the founder and they are the co-founders.
MB: Caitlin, how did you become PDC president?
