D.C. playwrights (L to R) Rebecca Gingrich-Jones, Gwydion Suilebhan, Laura Zam and Allyson Currin hope to create artistic love connections with D.C. Theater Artists Speed Dating.
In many people's minds, New York City is synonymous with theater and playwriting, but the D.C. area boasts hundreds of playwrights proud to call the National Capital Region home. The newly-formed D.C.-Area Playwrights Group is hosting a special event on November 6th, to match these playwrights -- who tend to work alone, tucked away in front of glowing computer screens -- with potential creative partners, such as directors and literary managers. Rebecca Sheir speaks with the organizers of D.C. Theater Artists Speed Dating, who hope the event will be the beginning of many beautiful, theatrical friendships.
