29th Street Playwrights Collective Resident Artist and Dramaturg Emma-Goldman-Sherman Set for Great Plains Theatre Conference

29th Street Playwrights Collective Resident Artist and Dramaturg Emma-Goldman-Sherman has been selected as one of four dramaturgs working on 26 of the nation's most exciting new plays chosen to participate in the Great Plains Theatre Conference in Omaha, NE. She will be working with playwrights Gina Femia, Dan Giles, Elizabeth Heffron, Ben Hoover, Paul Hufker, Emilio Rodriguez and Celine Song.

Emma-Goldman-Sherman will also be teaching a workshop entitled "Writing in Tongues" with a series of exercises to stretch writers beyond what we know and permit us to discover what we can imagine.

Her own work, "A Tour of the Early 21st Century Reproductive System (The Way We Used to Have Babies) & Real Live Birth Experience!" will be presented there as part of The GPTC Fringe.

Mac Wellman says GPTC is "ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CLEARINGHOUSES, AND WAY-STATIONS FOR SERIOUS THEATRE-MAKERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY."

The 29th Street Playwrights Collective develops the voices of emerging, mature playwrights through weekly craft discussions, writing sessions, and the critique and support of the work via readings with actors followed by structured feedback. Our goal is to foster new work for the stage through workshop readings, and provide opportunities for public readings and workshop performances of members' works. We commit to serving at least 50% women writers and other collaborators.
