Join us for our third year of showcasing work in development by exciting playwrights, both new and established. Each new play is read by TDPS students, followed by a discussion with the playwright. Presented in partnership with the Townsend Center Contemporary Drama Working Group.

About the playwright:

His work draws upon both intimate autobiography and epic strangeness to honor the lives of hermaphrodites, of intersex people, Filipinos, tomboys and witches, queers, young folks, elders, family. His play Beautiful Monsters explores the theme of first love. Years in the writing, he began telling its story as an undergraduate in Cherríe Moraga’s drama classes.
